I just received my review copy of Todd Shimoda's 'Oh!', and I am simply stunned by what a lovely book it is. I am rather used to the flimsy ARC's we tend to receive, but I have been known to get a final version of a book before. However, that is usually only for trades or re-releases. Imagine how surprised I was then when I got a large envelope yesterday holding a hardcover book, and opened it to find a fantastically designed little volume. I haven't had a chance to start it, but I sure do think that no matter what the quality of the writhing, this is a beautifully designed piece of work and a welcome addition to my shelf.

What do the rest of you who snagged 'Oh!' think?

I didn't snag that one, but I just looked at the cover image, and it's gorgeous! I hope the inside is as good.

Who is the publisher? I received a beautiful, well-bound and well-designed book from Pomegranate, Utagawa Kuniyoshi : the Sixty-nine stations of the Kisokaidō.

I love Chin Music Press! I discovered them when I picked up one of their books at the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference Bookfair earlier this year in Chicago, Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans? In fact, my review begins with a discussion of the physical beauty of the book.
