We’re strong supporters of the dusty, decades-old hardcover, but there’s nothing wrong with going the other way. This pile of staple-bound books comes from London’s Poundshop, a three-day store committed to selling everything within its walls for only a pound. Inside, you’ll find a set of sketches and charcoal drawings by one Mireille Fauchon just large enough to occupy you through a couple commutes. And when you’re done, hopefully you won’t feel too bad leaving it behind in a coffee shop. If you really like it, you can always pick up the hardcover.
