hey brett, love your books, especially the design. the rat press web site isn't there anymore so i thought i'd try to reach you here. i'm the author of the Taschen volume CINEMA NOW, with penelope cruz on the cover. it came out two years ago. i have a couple of juicy book pitches for you if you're still publishing. i know it's not a good time for books — but these are great ideas, and very timely, and of a piece with rat press. contact me at didionesque at if you're interested. best, andrew bailey
