Every once in a while, you’ll find a story here at GalleyCat on a striking book cover—or maybe the book covers we’d like to see—but if you’re really into the design side of publishing, you’ll want to add our mediabistro.com sister site UnBeige to your daily reading list. Last week, co-editor Stephanie Murg paid tribute to Leanne Shapton‘s Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry, in which the art director of the NYT op-ed pages hijacks the format of the catalog raisonné to chart a failed relationship between two New Yorkers. Murg’s post features sample pages that give you a better feel for Shapton’s sly creative genius—it takes some powerful imagination to make a work this experimental this accessible.
