Now the book is out in paperback (above),

with a nice, expensive advertising campaign in the current New Yorker magazine.

Then there are the fierce visions of artist Joe Coleman (above).

And of course, the late actor and polymath Vincent Price's memoir of his dog Joe (below).

with the very same title as the works above: "The Book of Joe."
