This yummy collection of pataphysical inventions by Derek Pell and Doug Skinner has just hit the shelves. It even features some collage illustrations by yours truly. (Apparently they didn’t have room for my name on the cover, but we’ll let that pass.) Look closely and you’ll see the book has an Afterword by the great French humorist Alphonse Allais. That alone should send you off to Zon to buy a copy.

Number 5 in our collectible Pocket Erotica series is an amusing and offbeat Cinderella story: FOOT NOTES by Restif de la Bretonne, translated from the French by Richard Robinson. This forthcoming edition features choice excerpts from Bretonne’s libertine novel Le Pied de Fanchette (“Fanchette’s pretty little foot”), which recounts the adventures—with many twists and turns—of a girl whose pretty feet attract nearly everyone she meets. Indeed, poor Fanchette is hounded by seducers wherever she goes.
