Homeric Tours -- An Odyssey Every Time!

Taken this afternoon on Ditmars Blvd. in the (predominately known as) Greek neighborhood of Astoria, Queens. Hope you saved a lot of vacation days.

As it happens I had a nice chat with a book cover designer while I was out in Queens. I told her I had a lot of burning questions about cover design and I hope she believed me. She said designers sometimes read the books they're designing, not always, but often they're curious anyway. She and the hostess of the party we were at mentioned Jedediah Berry's THE MANUAL OF DETECTION, hardcover edition, as an example of superlative cover design from last year.
