From My Levatoranz


FOUND by Paul Markowicz at The Strand Bookstore, Manhattan, New York

No idea what a Levatoranz or a Bulbospongiosus are, but it does seem that “J” really loves Matthew. This was found in a book outside at The Strand bookstore in New York City in the $1 books section.

Don’t Tread on Me


FOUND by S.K. Chidambaram and E.M. Hanover in Chicago, Illinois

We found this in a used book we bought from Powell’s Books on 57th Street in Hyde Park about five years ago. It’s had a place of honor on our fridge ever since. Our guess is that the folks in the picture are participating in some wacky ’70s school talent show, or it’s a teacher using a student to demonstrate the crushing effects of drug abuse (it’s definitely some sort of abuse). In any case, the Jolly Roger just brings it all together.
