Specimen showcase

Today was the first-semester class. During the next 15 weeks, I will [try to] bring a sample of different physical/printed type specimens to class.

The only criteria are that they have to be bound books, booklets, magazines, journals, newspapers, or another book (ish) or editorial-based media.
