We love coming into the office and finding a brand spankin’ new finished book sitting on our desk - especially when it has a super clever cover like this one, for Alain de Botton’s upcoming Religion for Atheists! And be sure to check out The Washington Post’s “Do atheists need ‘a cathedral of their own’?”
