Note to McSweeney’s: Watch It With the Stickers There

I’m a fan of McSweeney’s ability to crank out gorgeous low-priced well-made hardcover books, and issue #29 is no exception:

There’s always a nice level of detail, right down to the price sticker.

However, I really would like to be able to peel this off without leaving a messy patch of adhesive on the back of the book. Why can’t I? Why, indeed, as a subscriber, do I need the price sticker at all? The gag isn’t that great.

Don’t make me come down there…
