Randall Munroe is publishing a book of xkcd. The plan is for an initial press run of 10,000 copies sometime around June.
The print xkcd book is not being published through a traditional company but rather by breadpig — which was created by Alexis Ohanian, one of the founders of the social-news Web site reddit. The site has sold high-concept merchandise like refrigerator magnets or T-shirts, but never a book. (Its profits go to the charity Room to Read.)
I love the fact that the NYTimes commented
that it will be sold through the xkcd website and not initially in book stores and never in big chains. They also mentioned the fact that there will be no promotion campaign. Instead it will rely on word of keyboard.
Maybe someday the NYTimes will get it.
