The Introducing series of books
If you haunt bookstores as I do, you must have seen some of these books. They look like
(upscale comic books). You might think of these as
Cliff's Notes for postmoderns.
The illustrations are monochrome and range in quality from clever collages
and cartoons to crude scribbles.
The topics covered up to 1999 include
Ancient Eastern Philosophy,
Walter Benjamin, and
(the title of each book is Introducing followed by one of the above topics).
The publisher is Totem Books.
