We are incredibly proud to have been selected to join these magic places in the world. This title has been selected as a Booksmith Timeless Classic, meaning it is among the best of the best for the last several decades. We will ship it free anywhere in the United States.

THIS COPY (shown below) was hand signed by Bob Eckstein on the title page (see video) at his office. It is a new, unread first edition opened only for signing and comes with a certificate authenticating the signature. Published in October, 2016 by Clarkson Potter, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
BOB ECKSTEIN (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is our favorite cartoonist/illustrator/writer/artist whose work has been featured in The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Playboy, and more than a dozen other respected publications. He formerly taught at The School of Visual Arts and the Pratt Institute. An insight into his coolness is that he and his wife eloped - to Iceland! Thank you Bob Eckstein for signing our books.
THIS VIDEO was taken at Bob's office as he furiously signed our six hundred first printings so they would reach the store by pub date.
