News & Opinion: A Beautiful Book
How a book is packaged can make all the difference.
HarperBusiness has re-released the 1949 text of Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor and the book is gorgeous. I don't think the picture does it justice. They used great red cloth on the covers. There is no dust jacket. There is a simple plate on the front with the title and author and a plate on the back with a summary and author information. The pages are rough cut. I love the whole package.
I think it is a perfect gift for the investor in your life.
