We’re a little late, but on May 16th Tin House released a new edition of Whitman‘s “Song of Myself” illustrated by Allen Crawford, complete with a lovely book trailer.
From 1962 to 1963, before he wrote a famous novel about Las Vegas, Hunter S. Thompson traveled through South America as a journalist. Fifty years later, Brian Kevin retraced his steps and wrote about it in The Footloose American. Shortly thereafter, Nathan Gelgud illustrated the whole beautiful mess. (h/t randomhouse)
