The nice folks at The Silver Lining blog — consistently one of my favourite blogs for vintage design goodness — were kind enough to ask me for a contribution to their ‘Top 5’ feature last month, and so, as of today, the top 5 books beside my bed are online for everyone to see.
The Top 5 are:
- Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong by Terry Teachout
- The True Deceiver by Tove Jansson
- The Blue Fox by Sjón
- Britten and Brülightly by Hannah Berry
- The Pirate’s Dilemma: How Youth Culture Reinvented Capitalism by Matt Mason
I actually just finished reading Pops at the weekend, but there is no guarantee that I will read the rest in that order — the list really is just a happy accident of stacking. You you can read more about each of the selections in the post at The Silver Lining.
