We're revamping the A Book Apart paperbacks with better paper, french flaps, and more. Here is an in-progress paper prototype I put together. It was nice to use my neglected art school skills in X-Acto knifery and gluing.

Nice. Read this the other day. sustainable reading.
French flaps, is that what they're called? Did not know this.
Oh to be in book design! Love the french flaps but I'll miss the old spines.
Your spine is showing ; )
Beautiful work as always. As I could red on twitter multiple times : "Gosh, now I have to buy all the collectiion for the second time :)".
@Cameron Moll Flench Fraps would be funnier, I think.
I am looking forward to the one with a red cover. ;-)
@Ian Grivois Me too :)
Lickable. I'd almost buy them all again just to have them on my shelve. <3 the colors.
@Anton Peck French Faps would be funnier, I think.
Oooh, fancy French flaps! So the text won't be taller than the spine anymore? I kinda liked that effect, though it did make some people question whether that was an accident.
@Jason Santa Maria Looks Great!!
I see a widow ;)
@Jason Santa Maria any revisions or updates to the copy?
@Carter Digital (via James ... Not sure what you mean, what copy?
