The Silver Lining Top 5


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:

  1. Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong by Terry Teachout
  2. The True Deceiver by Tove Jansson
  3. The Blue Fox by Sjón
  4. Britten and Brülightly by Hannah Berry
  5. 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.
