I've made a fair amount of money ripping this man off.

A few years ago I was at a yard sale at Steven Guarnaccia's house and he gave me a paper back version of Yellow Submarine for watching his stuff for a while. Its completely fallen apart now from constant reading. Its just loose pages. Beautiful.

No one will ever bring work like that into the world at that scale again.
