Produced with the finest materials, the book was set and printed by Scott Vile of Fairfield, ME. With seven photographs from the 2010 Maine Lobster Festival taken and digitally printed by Matthew Robbins. Signed on the colophon by Vile and Robbins, as called for. Handsomely bound by Gray Parrot of Hancock, Maine and housed in a custom-made green cloth drop-back box with leather spine label. An exception production in very fine condition. The first private press edition of any work by David Foster Wallace. "Consider the Lobster" examines Rockland's Maine Lobster Festival and was originally published in the August 2004 issue of Gourmet magazine. As typical of the Infinite Jest author, the essay is equal parts reportage, science, and philosophy-examining questions of animal cruelty through the lens of the festival. One of Wallace's finest essays, a form he redefined and one for which he may ultimately be most remembered.

Yes, despite the catchy headline David Foster Wallace really does turn his microscope on the American Video News's annual answer to the Acadamy Awards.
