David Sedaris Diaries: A Visual Compendium
By David Sedaris
A visual compendium of the illustrated diaries David Sedaris has been creating since 1977 - time capsules of both our culture and the thoughts and observations of one of our most beloved writers.
In Theft by Finding, David Sedaris opened up his written diaries (and himself) to the world in an unprecedented way. Now, in this illustrated volume, readers will for the first time be able to experience the elaborate, three-dimensional, handmade form that his diaries have always taken. For, in addition to being an unparalleled chronicler of the world around him, Sedaris has always been a keen observer and collector of the art, objects, and ephemera that are part of his visual landscape.
A celebration of the odd and unexpected, the beautiful and the ugly, and the humorous and sensitive reflections so familiar to any fan of his writing, David Sedaris Diaries (1977-2016): A Visual Compendium offers unique insight into the author's view of the world and stands alone as a striking, collectible volume in itself.
Compiled and edited by Sedaris's longtime friend Jeffrey Jenkins, and including interactive components, postcards, and never-before-seen photos and artwork, this is a necessary addition to any Sedaris collection, and will enthrall the author's fans for many years to come.
Jeffrey Jenkins is an artist and graphic designer whose artwork and collections-based projects have been exhibited in the United States and Europe. His design studios, Jenkins & Page and Jeffrey Jenkins Projects, have created print and interactive media for clients including the New York Times, Time Life, Giorgio Armani, and the National Audubon Society, as well as designed a range of books, book covers and artists' catalogues. He lives in New York City.
