A Book Fit for Gowanus: Poop Culture

Being the Gowanus Lounge and having the Big G as one of the many Brooklyn locales that claims our attention, we'd be remiss if we didn't not that last night was the release party at Galapagos for the new book, Poop Culture. We'd noticed the crapper above--which was created for the event--in the window of Galapagos but were so tired from shooting photos all day that we didn't give it a second thought.

Regardless, the full title of the book by Dave Praeger is Poop Culture: How America is Shaped by its Grossest National Product. It no doubt includes everything you always wanted to know about crap, but were afraid to ask. You can find more about it here. As we said, it might be considered off-topic for us, but anything having to do with crap it totally right up our alley, given the vast amounts of the stuff that flows right into the Gowanus when it rains.
