This week our Cool New Book is Shadow Atlas, a gorgeous, limited edition book from Nora Krug. The book, silk-screened, of which there are only 400 copies, is absolutely stunning, and details legends of ghosts from a variety of culture. If you want know more about the book, there’s a great interview with Nora, readable here.
