Yaniv Soha at St. Martinís nabbed North American rights in what the house would only call "an aggressive" pre-empt to comedian Joe Mandeís Look at This Fucking Hipster. Born out of Mandeís popular Web site of the same name (www.latfh.com), which features pictures of supposed hipsters accompanied by snarky captions, the illustrated book will both mock and celebrate hipster culture. Hannah Brown Gordon of Foundry brokered the deal in conjunction with the L.A. management company Generate. [Publishers Weekly]
