Bookshelf: What We’re Reading

In the world of books this week…

Designer Frank Chimero successfully funded his self-published “The Shape of Design” on Kickstarter, and the resulting book will be available in printed and virtual form in early May. “Haute Couture, The Polaroids of Cathleen Naundorf,” to be released in June, collects the photographer’s haunting, ethereal large-format polaroids of couture dresses in gorgeous environments. In Spain, the Catalan Railways makes starting a new book easy with a promotion giving train riders QR codes to fetch the first chapters of several books.
