STACK 1: Spring Awakening, The Odyssey, Le Corbusier, The Paris Review

I'm going to start a new semi-regular series on the blog that will be called "Stacks" (at least until I come up with a better name). These posts will be very short, and will simply feature an aesthetically-connected stack of books (selected by myself and my girlfriend, an Interior Designer). The idea of staging books is something that I've always thought was interesting -- I can't help but connect the themes of the books along with their designs/colors, which often creates peculiar literary webs.

Frank Wedekind, Spring Awakening (ARC from Faber & Faber)
Homer, The Odyssey (Penguin Hardback Classics)
Le Corbusier, Towards A New Architecture (Dover)
The Paris Review, Spring 2009

Currently Reading:
You Bright and Risen Angels, William T. Vollmann
Ayako, Osamu Tezuka

Currently listening to:
Saigon Rock & Soul, 1968-1974 (Sublime Frequencies)
