Book Covers by ‘Jason’

The enigmatic Norwegian graphic novelist ‘Jason’ creates some amazing jacket art, my favorite of which is his design for the latest edition of The Dharma Bums, out as a Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition (below). I haven’t read any of his graphic novels, but I just ordered The Left Bank Gang, which centers on F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, and James Joyce in the bohemia of 1920’s Paris.

Expat’ed: Americans in Paris

As I will be studying in Paris next winter quarter, I’ve recently developed an obsession with the ideals of the expatriate movement – so, here are some photos of Americans in the City of Lights. In the coming weeks I will continue to satiate my obsession with tidbits regarding the somewhat strained yet decidely dynamic relationship between America and France.
