When the finished copy of Beg, Borrow, Steal, Michael Greenberg‘s collection of autobiographical essays, turned up in our mailbox last week, it felt uncannily familiar to us, so we went digging into the stacks of review copies surrounding our desk until we came up with The Late Age of Print, Ted Striphas‘s consideration of the continued relevance of the printed book which came out earlier this year.

Both covers use images from the work of Cara Barer, who has been “attempting to blur the line between objects, sculpture, and photography” for at least the last half-decade, based on the sampling from her online portfolio—which offers a lot more opportunities for art directors to sample her wares. Or have you seen Barer’s handiwork on other tomes already?
