Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Clothing of Books by Jhumpa Lahiri is a very slim volume that repeats a philosophical statement several times - a book is not its cover, and a cover is not the book. Unfortunately, the book stops at that statement and does not go beyond to discuss the reasons, decisions, and conversations behind cover design. As such, this “book” is all philosophy and no fact; it would be better suited to a personal essay format.
