    For December:

    invisible-cities-cover

    [book cover blacklight redesign by QuingChing]

    Invisible Cities┬áby Italo Calvino — For the exploring Rangers among us, the setup is Kubla Khan, a conqueror who wept at having no world left to conquer, dialoguing with merchant Marco Polo, who proceeds to describe in 55 chapters 55 cities that the Khan has never seen. This conceit allows Calvino to wax poetic, comment on utopias, critique cultural extremes, and most importantly take the reader & Khan to places beyond imagin8ing. The book is so beautiful, you’ll soak its pages with your tears of wonder.
