Godine's Meet the Authors Series: Llewelyn Howland III, No Ordinary Being

We sat down with Llewellyn Howland III, author of No Ordinary Being, to talk about his upcoming Godine book. No Ordinary Being tells the story of W. Starling Burgess, "an authentic American polymath," who designed everything from yachts to airplanes and even helped Buckminster Fuller in designing and building the famed Dymaxion car. No Ordinary Being, a biography long in the making and packed with beautiful illustrations and photographs of Burgess' designs, is due to publish in December.

Watch Howland discuss Burgess and No Ordinary Being below and shed insight on just what makes Burgess so worth reading about.
