    John Hodgman, Entertainment Weekly:

    Aaron Draplin, creator of Field Notes, is an unstoppable genius, the Da Vinci of Thick Lines, and a super guy. Draplin knows his ’70s era tourism pamphlets cold, and so I knew his style would match both the promise and sadness of every vacation: a fresh start that announces its own end.

    Plus, look at that awesome lighthouse. It’s based in part on an actual tiny island in Maine that is for sale. Doesn’t it look like a great place to live and then die? If you buy enough copies of this book, America, I will buy that lighthouse and go into it and I promise you will never hear from me again.

    “I love everything about this hilarious book except the font size.” —Jon Stewart
