Venerable internet magazine Slate hopes to reinstate the old tradition of the book review with a monthly special section containing only that : book reviews. Â Called The Slate Book Review (duh!), this standalone review section will take over Slate’s homepage every month and contain articles on any type of books.
Every week, a different cartoonist will provide illustrations to accompany the articles. Â The first in what hopefully will be a long and illustrous line, is Derf Backderf, who contributed four illustrations, and also provided the section’s logo.
As they see, stay tuned!
