Daily Book Graphics #356 / The tower


The Daily Book Graphics Project Goes On!

I just realized that I went past the official deadline for the DBG project. I'd also forgotten that I had taken a brief hiatus while traveling last spring and that I still have another 11 posts to get to 365. In any case, I am not going to stop the project. It may end up being every other day, we'll see. When I get to #365 I may have a more reflective post about the process of doing the blog for the past year. In two weeks I'm going to take another break from book posts as I will be in Brooklyn installing an indoor/outdoor installation at Black & White Project Space. More about that later, but I will say that it involves a rotten garden shed 48 portrait banners and an invented intellectual history of pest control.

Daily Book Graphics #343 / Understanding Soccer Tactics

©1966 / I bought this book at the Buffalo Central Library shop. Almost every page is heavily underlined and every diagram is drawn over to some degree. Someone really wanted to get their game together.

Daily Book Graphics #336 / Hey God!

©1972 / Today I stumbled upon a thrift store in Riverside (a Buffalo neighborhood), that for some reason was giving away their books (mostly religious) for free. This is one of the more interesting ones.
