The Odyssey

A guy with a lot of facial tattoos asked me where he could find the Odyssey. I showed him our editions and left him and his friend to pick out the version they wanted. As soon as I walked away I could hear him saying to his friend, "Dang, bro. Feel these pages! They weird, am I right?"

I think I noticed which edition he was picking up, and now I'm just dying to go back there and take a look at the second copy.

    1. ...Yes. They had a deckle edge! Definitely weird!

  2. are the pages glossy? because actually that WOULD be weird

    1. It would be! Instead, they had a deckle edge. As former back office person who stamped books for a while, I HATE deckle edges.

  3. Oh yes Deckle edges really are strange, I can see why he was suprised
