Wink is a website that reviews one remarkable paper book every weekday. My wife, Carla Sinclair, is the editor. We take lots of photos of the covers and the interior pages of the books to show you why we love them.
This week we reviewed:
The Engineer’s Sketchbook – A collection of timeless mechanical concepts explained with basic principles
Incredible Cross-Sections - a books that simplifies complex things by bisecting objects on super-size pages
Secret Identity – The fetish art and bizarre fate of Superman’s co-creator
Recording The Beatles – A hefty book in a box that comes with tons of goodies and everything there is to know about the Fab Four recording at Abbey Road
Magic Color Flair - An enchanting collection of Disney artist Mary Blair’s delightful art
Codex Seraphinianus – This is the weirdest book you’ve ever seen
