Lonely Books is a lovely booklet! The latest from Josh MacPhee of justseeds and Interference Archive, slipping into that sweet poetic mode he visits from time to time. This booklet is a great use of 2-color printing, sometime he has been exploring in his design work with increasing effectiveness. Here's the brief description from the inside cover:
"I found and photographed all these books with my phone between 2014-2016 in the Park Slope and Gowanus neighborhoods of Brooklyn."
Lonely Books documents these finds, with captions to indicate the bibliographic details, and little questions and comments interjected here and there. A simple but great publication about a very New York phenomena.
