ISBN Graffiti

Okay, so this is totally a geek thing, but how cool is it? (Linked to from Bookninja.)

For those of you who don’t know, ISBNs are the International Standard Book Numbers you get near the barcode. Every title has a unique ISBN. And to see them as graffiti is simply awesome enough to make me want to live in Toronto. I shall expect minions to be doing this with my tome when it hits the shelf, in order to perpetuate the myth that I am in fact a totally funky hipster. Or whatever.

I’m about to hit Nottingham with some Great Gatsby action. Or—sweet irony!—a little of DeLillo’s Underworld. Fuck it, I’ll just quote whole paragraphs across railway bridges. That should culture up the yoof.
