C.M. Mayo

Another trend (started by my cleaning lady in Mexico?)-- books arranged from tall to small. I call it the Xylophone Look.


How totally, as you say, absurd! I hadn't noticed that trend in the PB catalog or anywhere else. Ridiculous.

I'm reminded of an old New Yorker cartoon that I can only paraphrase. It shows an interior designer talking to a customer, and he says something like, "And on this wall I see books. Pink books, mauve books!"


Yes, it's the same idea: White pages, no distracting colors or images or titles on the spines to take away from the overall "effect" of the wall. It would be funny if it weren't so disturbing.


Classic authors - bound in leather! The perfect accessory for the Happy Booker...
