It’s free, but you will need an iPad or a Macintosh to read it. Follow this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/persistence/id946754502.

Risking the Ridiculous 1.2

Version 1.2 of Risking the Ridiculous is now in the iBookstore. Risking the Ridiculous is the catalog of the Babbington Press, which has been risking the ridiculous in the pursuit of the sublime since 1975. 

 Version 1.1 added the beginning of a chronicle of the making of The Personal History with a long section on the conception, birth, and nurturing of the early work, from a cold day in 1962 to sometime late in 1981. 

Version 1.2 adds the early work itself in scanned reproductions that enlarge to a readable size. 

The catalog is free, but you will need an iPad or Macintosh to read it. Follow this link to the iBookstore: itunes.apple.com/us/book/risking-the-ridiculous/id949526276
