Dear Phaidon Press: the prequel

Dear Publisher, Phaidon Press:

I am keen to work with you because I have written a book! And, get this, it is a book about art. I know, this is the very subject you publish books about. It's quite a coincidence. Destiny has brought us together.

You are probably wondering what would make this book I've written worthwhile for you to publish. Well, it's about art...

... which is the very subject you publish books about!

Ha ha ha. But enough joking around. I bet you want to know what the title is. You will love it. It is:

The Greatest Writings on Art Ever

That Are Short
And By a Non Historian
With this estimation of "Greatest" Being According to the Author and 2 of the Author's Blog Readers
Meaning No Offense to Any of the Other Fine Phaidon Press Authors

You are all like "I seriously love this title."

But I know. Publishing is a business. And you need something a little more to make you see that this will work out. 

That is why I have enclosed my lucky rock.

No, seriously, I know I joke around, but this is a really lucky rock. Take good care of it and I believe we will make great and lavishly illustrated with no expense spared bestsellers together.

I breathlessly await your response. Is it okay if I say that I'm super excited? 

I am super excited!

Oh, you probably should have spoken up more quickly.

With much regard,

Feldenstein Calypso

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
