Indulging in some light Dan Brown? Perusing a Fabio-emblazoned romance novel? Maybe you’re curious about the oeuvre of L. Ron Hubbard, but don’t want people to think you’re a Scientologist. The solution is here! Book City Jackets makes beautiful paper bag-style book covers that offer discretion and style to any public reading experience while keeping your real book jackets clean and untorn. Book City’s brand new Artists Edition jackets present a pastoral scene from the tremendously talented Michael C. Hsiung, an ode to octopi by coffee-cup stippler Cheeming Boey and an elegant eagle portrait courtesy of Nishat Akhtar.
Why weren’t these around when I needed to cover my high school textbooks? Back in my day, we had to make do with the free book jackets advertising UPN’s fall programming and Mountain Dew they gave out in class. You kids have it easy!
