Our favorite local music reviewers, Pitchfork Media, have put together a book! Thesaurus Musicarium: The Pitchfork Year in Music 2003 is the first of what they promise to be a series of annual yearbooks, "featuring in-depth coverage of each year's greatest albums and singles, as well as the most noteworthy news stories, the site's best writing, and previously unpublished features written exclusively for the series by members of the Pitchfork review staff," with design work by Henry Owings. Preorder yours for only $8.95.
