Alternate covers, by Thyra Heder.
The Hairpin’s travel series, “An Experience Definitely Worth Allegedly Having,” is now available for purchase (and has been for two weeks, during which time it has verryyyy slowly been encroaching on Jon Krakauer)! It’s $1.99, and the two first episodes (of 8 total) are from the wonderful Carrie Frye and Maria Bustillos. Here are excerpts from each — Carrie | Maria — if you’d like to give them a whirl. They’re so good!
There’s also a Tumblr (linked above) with bonus media from each episode. Salacious pictures and video!!!, etc. It’s also got a few alternate covers, by the incredibly talented Thyra Heder, and they’re all beautiful, but the one above is my favorite (aside from the actual cover).
Future contributors: Jenna Wortham, Nicole Cliffe, Jim Behrle, Chiara Atik, Anne Helen Petersen, and me (Edith).
Aaand a couple interviews vaguely about the Series, too: with Logan Sachon, on The Billfold, and with Allie Jones, on The Atlantic Wire. We also got a nice mention in The New York Times Magazine last weekend. Know anyone else who wants to chat about this? With me or anyone involved with the series? Or about anything else? Or otherwise review it, or eviscerate it, in any way at all? I’ll do basically anything; I want the whole world to know about this e-book!!
And you don’t have to have a Kindle, either — the app for desktop reading is free and easy to install. Like 60 seconds. Maybe less.
Well, here it is again! I hope you like it!
Even easier to buy than Choire’s book!
