A Softer World: Second Best Isn’t So Bad by Emily Horne and Joey Comeau. 244 pages, all-colour. For extras, there are a bunch of the original, super-crappy photocopied ASWs that Joey & Emily made at the all-night Kinkos in 2002 — with commentary! That section’s called Pretty Good for a First Try, you should get it just for that. Contains all the alt-texts from the site!
