Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

Madonna of the Toast

Madonna of the Toast - Buzz Poole Yet another strange book that found its way into my lap through my husband's scavenging. This funny, little book actually surprised me. When I realized it was showcasing the top hits of the Pareidolia phenomenon, I thought, "Oh Jeez, what a waste of paper." But I have to say that Buzz Poole had a thoughtful and sometimes very funny, but always respectful approach to the people who see faces in food and objects. It's also laid out in a beautiful way as well. If you dig the kitsch of modern Western culture, check this little gem out!
