Findings: An Illustrated Collection

    By

    Did you know that prairie dogs kiss more often if humans are watching? That people who have just ridden an "up" escalator are twice as likely to donate to charity as those descending? Such perverse nuggets of scientific discovery are assembled in "Findings," the bizarre and beloved back-page column of Harper's Magazine. Now, these surreal shards of knowledge take on new life in delightful illustrations by Graham Roumieu author of cult classic In Me Own Words: The Autobiography of Bigfoot. In the tradition of Schott's Miscellany and The New Yorker cartoon compendia, FINDINGS is funny, informative, and occasionally wondrous. FINDINGS is written by Harper's contributor Rafil Kroll-Zaidi, with prefatory remarks by Patton Oswalt.
