Lapham’s Quarterly

I absolutely cannot get enough of this journal. Picked it up in Barnes and Noble on Halloween night and haven’t put it down since. Contributers include: Mao Zedong, Niccolo Machiavelli and Gil Scott-Heron. Hang on! I hear you cry. They’re all dead!

Well, yes. LQ consists of carefully-curated original texts from authors living and dead interspersed with illustrations and quotations. Where else can you find letters from Thomas Jefferson, a translation of Beowulf and an article about the Shah of Iran back to back?

Not willing to fork out $15? Head on over to the Lapham’s Quarterly website for highlights from the current volume.
