Gravity's Rainbow Illustrated

This collection of Zak Smith's illustrations for Gravity's Rainbow is too good to pass up. Never read the book, but may have to. Zak Smith created an illustration for every page. Talk about a labor of love. Fascinating, if depressingly post-modern.
Don't ask me why, but I really like this shoe.

Stole it off of Calum, yet again. (the link, not the shoe.)

Depressingly post-modern? That's GR through and through.

I assume you are right about that. I haven't read the book yet.

Yeah, sorry, didn't make myself clear. I was trying, though my fear addled brain, to say "If you think that these pictures are postmodern, you should read the book; it's 760 pages of post modernity and aerial pie fights" but I got my words all wrong.

Your words are just fine, Calum. That is pretty much what I got out of your first comment. But just for fun maybe you could try to explain that one more time using entirely different words!

I'll give it go: Gravity's Rainbow is the book that wrote the book on postmodernity. It is so post modern that any sort of critical analysis is to be bent through a dogmatic lens of cultural inappropriateness.

I have just had five pints of peroni nastro azzuro and if I get these tags right it will be a miracle of some order.

In sum: books.

Well, if you're still able to properly link to alcoholic beverages I'm not really worried about you. : )
