I just finished reading Trevor Paglen's (see Day 252) Blank Spots On The Map. I highly recommend the book. You are guaranteed to be surprised and intrigued by its contents. Trevor is a hybrid artist, writer, geographer, teacher, traveler, spy, researcher, activist, and more. It is material creative inspiration for the contemporary moment.
Read some review of the book, from Mother Jones or TIME.
You can even buy a copy through the Military Book Club.
