Book: Fun, Taste and Games

John Sharp and David Thomas are happy to announce the publication of:
Fun, Taste, & Games: An Aesthetics of the Idle, Unproductive, and Otherwise Playful
A new book in  MIT Press Play Thinking series.
This compact tome proposes a fun-centered aesthetic framework for understanding and appreciating games. This project is the result of a long meditation on the games and art debate. They hope it provides a productive and measured response to the more traditional aesthetic approaches which have, at times, pushed games into some uncomfortable and awkward positions far from the play at the center of the form.
