I’ve only seen a glimpse of this new collection of Sedaris’s work, but it looks like we’re all in for a treat. The author’s trademark wit and dark, self-deprecating humor are paired with photos and original artwork by Sedaris himself. This big compendium gives the reader a full, three-dimensional experience and is perhaps the closest any of us will ever get to being inside David Sedaris’s head. - Jade

Most self-respecting sewers know how to laugh at themselves when a project doesn’t go as planned or doesn’t look quite as chic as they had hoped. With Pattern Behavior, you can laugh at something other than yourself between projects. A crafty version of the classic postcard, with its saucy captions it lets you see what those vintage McCall’s girls are up to when you leave them alone in your pattern drawer. - Megan
