    I am a huge fan of the amazing creativity of the 826 literacy centers and accompanying stores, and none of the fantastically useless and beautifully designed products in this catalog disappoints. I really enjoyed the blubs from the products' creators describing how they came up with their ideas. I was a little let down by the illustrations of the products in this book, though--I would have liked it better if the photographs of the items showed the full text of the product labels and logos, which are well-written and hilarious.
