Welcome! You're looking at an archived Snarkmarket entry. We've got a fresh look—and more new ideas every day—on the front page.

July 7, 2009

<< Wolfgang and Red Riding Hood | >>



Here it is.

Listen, I think you are really going to like this book. It’s a distillation of so many of the themes we orbit around here at Snarkmarket, presented through the prism of many minds, all very different, and all wrapped up in the form of a slick, slim volume that you’ll be happy to hold in your hands.

And again—I don’t want to give anything away, but—there’s a secret that can only be unlocked if you possess the physical object(s).

New Liberal Arts is $8.99 if you want a copy (or three) and you can snag it here. Update: All sold out, but you can now grab the PDF.

Keep in mind: This project isn’t over! Really, it’s only now that it can begin. We’ve collectively created a coherent piece of work worth sharing with the world. But, as New Liberal Arts itself tells us, ahem, on page 41:

Ideas succeed not by being good or bad, but by being sold effectively.

As it happens, I think we’ve got some really good ideas in here—but we do need your help selling them. And there is a lot you can do to pitch in. Blog this, tweet about it, Facebook-share it, or best of all, recommend it directly to a friend (or three) who you think might like it.

Together, we’ll sell these books, by hook or by crook*, and then—here’s the fun part—together we’ll ask: What next?

*Or in eight hours, apparently.

congrats on making it happen! i just ordered my copy. The cover has that great composition book look like it wants to be dogeared and worn from use - i will do my best to honor its wishes.

very psyched for my copy to arrive! no shipping charge? you guys are too much. keep up the snarktastic work, everybody!

Excited to order but I can't seem to enter a Canadian province in the PayPal form. Help!

Also, looking at that list of authors makes me even more excited (and a little sad I had no time to try and contribute at the time...). You three, Rex, Diana, Jennifer... Yowza! Congrats!

I'll check out the Paypal shipping settings ASAP -- if anybody else has ordering problems, let me know.

I tried again and it worked. Not sure if you changed something or it was a glitch. Either way, thanks. Looking forward to it.

Sweet! I'm looking forward to a physical instantiation of Snarkmarketness!

You can order multiple copies now, too! Awesome!

Already sold out! Please print more.

Damn... you forget to check Snarkmarket for a couple of days and then find out that through Kottke that the NLA is sold out... Fine gifts for fine friends; thus a reprint is in order!

What are your feelings on me getting the .pdf made into a book by a service such as

I missed the physical copy and would rather read it on paper.
