Three more books:Our Dumb World
Parody atlas, from The Onion
. It's not as good as America: The Book
, that's for sure. If you like that Onion sense of humor, though, it's worth checking out.There Is A Bird On Your Head!
, Mo Willems
I'm a fan of Willems' simple illustration style and mildly absurdist sense of humor. He's better known for the Knuffle Bunny
and Don't Let the Pigeon...
books. This one is from the Elephant & Piggie
series, which seems to be an attempt to break into the easy-reader market. If you like the pigeon books, you'll probably also like these.Sticker City: Paper Graffiti Art
, Claudia Walde.
If we're in the midst of a graffiti/street-art renaissance, it's mostly because of the Internet. Thames & Hudson has been doing a great job of documenting these art-world micro-movements, and this book is no exception. Recommended for artists, art lovers and, naturally, graffiti heads.
