Watching Words Move

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.

  • The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

    If you think your religion has some crazy ideas, you haven't seen anything yet. The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster ($11) is the accompanying guide to the new parody religion — born out of last year's battle between advocates of evolution and intelligent design — that worships a supernatural entity resembling spaghetti and meatballs. Followers of the FSM, called Pastafarians, believe that pirates control global warming and natural disasters, that superstition trumps science no matter what, and that the FSM hid dinosaur fossils underground to dupe mankind. Oh yeah, and heaven has a stripper factory and a beer volcano.

  • This is Our War: A Soldier's Portfolio

    While most of the photography books we've featured have been of a light nature, it's never a bad thing to have some more substantial material on your coffee table as well. Spawned from a GQ feature article, This is Our War: A Soldier's Portfolio ($20) tells the stories of our troops in Iraq through 250 photographs taken not by journalists, but by the soldiers themselves. Some are moving, some funny, some simply beautiful, but all are honest, intimate portrayals of war.
