Dan Clowes New Yorker Cover Questions Future Of Book Stores

Comic book artist Dan Clowes drew the cover of next week’s issue of The New Yorker.

In the drawing, Clowes imagines a book store full of author-related tchotchkes and eReaders, but no books. The eReaders are the only sign of actual reading amid Shakespeare  t-shirts, Bronte hats and Hemingway drawings.

The drawing raises the questions about how book stores will survive in the age of eBooks. Is author merchandising the answer? What do you think?
