Lonely Books zine

Pound the Pavement #14: Lonely Books

by Josh MacPhee

"If all the lonely books got together and formed a union, would they still be lonely?" asks Josh MacPhee in this touching zine that chronicles the solitary books he found between 2014 and 2016 on the streets of his Brooklyn neighborhood. The rather touching books and thoughts on these pages were lovingly phone photographed, bestowed with full citations, and hand-printed on a Risograph. Are they still lonely? Only the books can say.
