Worth Reading: Italo Calvino

These are some of the most well-designed book covers we've seen in a long time, and the writing inside them is equally as exciting. These collections of essays and short fiction (previously unpublished in English) by Italo Calvino were released last fall, and we're finally making our way through all of them.  If you're already a fan of his, the essays will make you love him more. If you're new to him, a good place to start is The Complete Cosmicomics -- a book everyone should probably read.
