Let the RIGHT book FIND YOU new arrivals

-7 degrees on Monday; 48 degrees on Saturday – ONLY in our beloved KC! Time to get out and in it and shake off the seasonal stiffening and malaise. Here at Prospero’s 39 we have a swell new shipment of pretty cool stuff:

THE FILM BOOK of Ralph Bakshi’s “Lord of the Rings” – Bakshi is famous for his animated live action films: my fave “Wizards” “American Pop” and the more saucy “Fritz the Cat”. His Lord of the Rings is brilliant! And we have the film book w/over 130 color pics. ($15 hardback)

NEW ART: a) Julie Blackmon’s striking, David Lyncheon, tension saturated “Domestic Vacations” ($12.95); b) Seton Smith’s nervous and sketchy “Without Warning” ($11.50); or c) Nani Marquina’s quirky domestic, textile driven photography.

ASSORTED: a) “Route 66 the Mother Road” ($12.95); b) “Blink” by Malcolm Gladwell ($8.95); c) “The Ubiquitous Pig” a photo essay ($11.50) ; or d) “Snow Crash” by Neil Stephenson (note: this guy is SOMETHING! – a big, inventive mind!) ($8.95); Hunter S. Thompson’s “Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas” ($7.95); a couple Terry Pratchets: “The Long War” written w/Steven Baxter ($8.50) and “Snuff” ($5.50)
