On the left is the American cover of Michio Kaku's new book, The Physics of the Impossible. On the right is the British cover. (Actually, I found another, similar British cover, too. Same typeface and style, but with a photo behind it.)
You might think I prefer the British. And in a way, I do. But I'm also sort of intimidated by it. It makes me think I'm supposed to read the book while listening to some retro-New Wave band I've only heard mentioned in passing.
Like, I don't know, Black Kids, or something. I'm so intimidated, I think that the Black Kids reference is probably way too lame and outdated, too.
It's intimidatingly hip. Oh, you Brits and your Mod hairstyles and blues-based rock bands made up of art school drop-outs. I just don't get you.
Anyway. Kaku is reading next Wednesday, March 26 at the Pacific Science Center. We'll be there, selling books. You should go. I'll either be their or home reading a contemporary music blog or something.
