A BOOK ABOUT BOOKS! HOW COOL IS THAT?
A Book About Books! How Cool Is That!?
Michelle G Cameron
Jamise Harper, a DC-area author, compiled a very intriguing illustrative book about books entitled Bibliophile – Diverse Spines as a way to help avid readers diversify their reading content. Her book features books written by minority and black authors, and also features minority designers and store owners with illustrations to show spines grouped in popular categories. Her book is a remix of Jane Mount’s original Bibliophile: An Illustrated Miscellany.
If you are an avid reader with a desire to grab some diverse book titles, this is where you can start! Jamise also created a 2023 wall calendar featuring book spines for every month, which will be released on July 26, 2022.
Thank you Jamise (and Jane) for this innovative book for minority and black writers! Kudos to you for exposing other writers to new readers!
