I just got my copy of the new Counterpoint/Soft Skull catalog, and all I can say is ah my gahd, these are awesome!
Looking like the cinematic counterpart to Continuum’s 33 1/3 Series on influential records, Soft Skull is publishing a series of monographs on films called Deep Focus, and it will debut in November with Jonathan Lethem’s book on John Carpenter’s They Live, and Christopher Sorrentino writing on Death Wish.
Can I just say that I really, really, really can’t wait for these books? I love the concept, and I love the design (which reminds me of the designs of Spacesick, particularly his I Can Read Movies series, which I wrote about just over a year ago).
As I said then, I’m a junkie for books, movies and design. This series looks to have these bases covered.
