Vintage Book Clocks, the Venice, California designer and purveyor of literary timepieces, has added to its catalog a few chronometers with slightly cracked attitude. Not every book clock they sell is a tad unhinged or otherwise meant to be humorous, and, for all I know, no laughs were intended with this recent crop. But they are certainly amusing to this citizen of Absurdistan.
The company is having a sale, through April 2, 2012, on Fab.com.
If The Runner With The Open Fly doesn't speed up your stopwatch, perhaps The Story of Crisco, a vintage product cookbook that likely omits the product's primary off-label use as an intimate lubricant, will grease your interest.
