Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 985 comments Back in the 1970's Godine was creating beautiful volumes for the like of Alexander Theroux and William H. Gass. Their imprint is a sign of a well built book and likely indicator of something you'll wanna read. I don't know what all they are up to in these days, but have see them floating around goodreads with their own profile self-promoting (none of that here! Let me do the promo for you!). I see that they list a few titles by J.M.G. Le Clézio, Harry Mathews, and of course that book by Perec. and then there's their Verba Mundi imprint,

Nathan "N.R." Gaddis (nathannrgaddis) | 985 comments My review of Gass's On Being Blue is a sort of prose poem ("prose" because it don't got meter; "poem" because it means I can get away with anything) rhapsodizing the beautiful craft of book making which Godine was still practicing at the time (and even at this time?) from the point of view of an amateur bookish guy.
