Apple Sweat: The 2006 Heat Wave from NYC Streets

Apple Sweat: The 2006 Heat Wave from NYC Streets

They say timing is everything. To most people, being on a trip in New York City during the hottest week since 1936 would be pretty rotten. But Derek Powazek saw an opportunity. With his keen eye, Derek found the city in rare form, capturing it all on his trusty Lomo LC-A ($200) and putting together Apple Sweat: The 2006 Heat Wave from NYC Streets ($19). We haven't gotten our hands on it yet, but judging by the samples provided and our knowledge of Señor Powazek's mad photography skills, this book is sure to be simply excellent.

  • A Dirty Job

    A Dirty Job ($16), the latest work of phenom Christopher Moore, is a curiously creative novel that peers into the underworld, but with just enough humor to make the demons seem like a punch line. Charlie Asher accidently becomes Death and gets taken on a six year long wild ride as one of a dozen or so grim reapers in San Francisco. They used to have coffee together, but then voices started coming out of the storm drains and they decided it was best for the balance of the universe to not communicate. Add in a small army of 14" tall squirrel people made up of different animal parts and human souls (based off of this artist) and you've got yourself a book worth reading.

  • Watching Words Move

    We're all about the design here at Uncrate, so we always get excited about any book on the topic — especially this one. Watching Words Move ($8) is a definitive collection of typography design that seeks to move your eyes across the page — we're just hoping it doesn't reveal too many of our secrets.
