A guide for the perplexed


From the Design Observer:

Random House double page advertisment in Saturday Review of Literature, Febuary 10, 1934. “How to Enjoy James Joyce’s Great Novel Ulysses” provides a map of Dublin to understand the geography, a cast of characters, and an outline of the action. As they wrote, “the publishers offer this simple clue to what all the fuss is about,” “don’t let the critics confuse you,” and “it is no harder to ‘understand’ than any other great classic.”
