Charles Johnstone’s deftly designed book The Girl in the Fifth Floor Walk-Up explores the allure of a pulp fiction narrative, “The Blonde” using a Raymond Chandler excerpt from Farewell My Lovely and nineteen-forties design elements to set the tone "It was a blonde. A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained glass window. She was wearing street clothes that looked black and white, and a hat to match and she was a little haughty, but not too much. Whatever you needed, wherever you happened to be-she had it." The book mirrors his previous self-published title Libby based on his muse and longtime collaborator. - David Strettell
