Booked: The Last 150 Years Told through Mug Shots | Giacomo Papi
21 posts
Every year twelve million Americans are arrested and photographed by the police. In many ways, mug shots are our history. Using a dazzling selection of mug shots that are arrestingly raw in their starkness and strangely eloquent in their simplicity, this absorbing, humorous, often bewildering collection sheds a whole new light on our rebellious century. From political icons Martin Luther King Jr.and Angela Davis, to A-list celebrities Hugh Grant and 50 Cent, from killer Ted Kaczynski to the actor who aided in Abraham Lincolns assassination, from prisoners of Auschwitz to a bearded Saddam Hussein, all of them declare a simple truth: The last 150 years told through police photography is truly an alternative history. Author Giacomo Papis brisk and insightful commentary enlightens us with intriguing backstories and little-known facts. A feast for the eyes and the mind, Booked presents an ingenious and utterly unique snapshot of our times.

BarkingMadRun I‘m down to my last two as well, I am halfway through one of them, and will finish the last one in February I think 6d
suzie.reads @BarkingMadRun 👍🏼 I will probably read my other two in Feb. It's a great challenge, read books I wouldn't normally read 🙂 6d
BarkingMadRun Yes!! I‘ve gotten creative already with this first set, I love the challenge 6d

Repost for @Cinfhen :

We‘re SO excited to share our 3rd annual reading challenge #Booked2020❣️
As usual, there are 24 prompts broken into 4 quarters/seasons. You are free to read in any order you wish. Just one book per prompt, please.

*New this Year* the last week of each quarter you MUST post & tag us with your completed prompts in order to be eligible for the quarterly drawing.

Questions ~ ask away
Sign up: https://tinyurl.com/y62p9fxs

marleed Does this mean you read throughout the quarter but wait until the last week of that quarter to post about that book with the booked2020 hashtag - meaning no booked2020 hashtag until the last week of the quarter? 3mo
Cinfhen No @marleed We STILL would LOVE to see what you‘re reading/ have read but those posts are no longer counting as an “official” entry post. It became too overwhelming checking & logging every day so now we are ONLY recording “wrap up posts “ as “official” entry posts for Quarterly Drawings. Thanks for asking!!!!! (edited) 3mo
marleed Oh, I get it - thanks! This will be my first time participating in this challenge- I‘m excited! 3mo
AmyG Omg....it‘s here! Thank you. I have one book left for 2019...and then I can start figuring this out. I think my favorite part is finding books for the prompts. 3mo
IamIamIam Whoo hoo!!!! Just signed up!!! Thanks so much for running this challenge! It's so easily managed that I don't feel any pressure, except when it comes to #LiteraryMammograms. 😂😘 @cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft 3mo

Cinfhen Hi @JanuarieTimewalker13 You can join #Booked2019 whenever!! It‘s 24 prompts broken into 4 quarters but the goal is to read all 24 by Dec 31,2019. You might have read a bunch already without knowing. I‘ll look for the original 24 prompts and tag u. Just use #hashtag #Booked2019 when u post a review and tag me and my cohosts @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft We do a quarterly drawing for a $20 gift card each quarter 👇🏼 8mo
Cinfhen And for every book read, no matter from which quarter/ season you earn a chance for the drawing. One book per prompt with a maximum of 24 entries! It‘s fun and no pressure 💞 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen ok, cool, thank you!! So if I have books I‘ve already read that fit, I should just go back and tag them? 8mo
Cinfhen Yes @JanuarieTimewalker13 ❤️and I‘m sorry I forgot to search for the original prompts. I will try later today 8mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Cinfhen No worries, I found them just below this post!! 8mo
