Along the way he worked very hard, met a lot of interesting people, and eventually came to understand that being a famous book jacket designer and exactly two dollars and fifty-eight cents would get him a dopio espresso macchiato at Starbucks. Period. But that was okay by him - as long as he had lots of engaging work, an acceptable roof over his head, and someone nice to wake up next to. And two dollars and fifty-eight cents. He did and he does, and the fruits of more than twenty years of labor are gathered herein. He very much wants you to take a look and see what you think, but will definitely understand if you don't have the time."--BOOK JACKET."
