On this episode of Take a Leaf, join Peter Mendelsund, one of the most prolific book cover designers at work today, and I in discussing the relationship between books and their readers. We chat about book covers, translation, dead authors, and Peter’s first novel, Same Same. Join us for a discussion of repetitions, visual meaning, and where, exactly, you, too, can find a same same shop.

You might notice that the audio gets a little wonky on this episode: we dealt with some car alarms and traffic, but, hey, we’ve all got to get where we’re going.
