Fall may seem a long time off, but not for sales reps (the catalogues and marketing plans are piled up on my desk as I write). One of the books I'm most looking forward to reading is Haruki Murakami's latest novel 1Q84. It's going to be a doorstop (over 900 pages) and it's going to look gorgeous. The book is designed by Chip Kidd who discusses the process here. It'll be out in late October -can't wait!
