A tiny “Tarzan” treatise.

More cool stuff from Robert Hansen and Poems-For-All — this is actually a 40-page essay entitled “Tarzan: the First 100 Years,” complete with vintage illustrations.  The mini-book was authored by David Lemmo and Rachael Wenban, and is based on their full-length book of the same name.

What you see below is the same size as a matchbook, people.  It’s amazing what you can do with that modest amount of space.

It’s also fun stuff. I just learned that Edgar Rice Burroughs’ iconic character is considered the first “superhero” of the 20th Century when he originally appeared in 1912.  (And that makes sense, if you think about it.)  These mini-books can easily fit in your pocket — you can carry them and read them anywhere.
