Unaccomodated Universe

It's funny how 'dated' this book seems, judging it specifically by the cover design. 1980. It is the book cover version of NBA players wearing short, shorts and long socks.

The orange burlap is a bland burnt orange colour in real life. In these photos it looks all coppery and exciting. Not the case. The book comes with a very stiff and clear jacket that I took off to avoid flashbacks when shooting it.

I read online that there a 294 of these signed by both Ted and Ekbert.

This book reminds me in colors of that Vintage Colossus. You know the one I'm talking about, right?

Thanks again for these photographs, they are really wonderful.

Oh geez, thanks for the link. That is another 'bad' idea of a cover.
You're welcome! :)
