I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Terry Border has such insight and creativity for the everyday items around us. Be drawn into this world, where objects take on a personality all their own.

Terry has created a wonderful world where even the most mundane objects come to life and have feelings, much like our own. With the help of some twisted wire--coffee mugs, doughnuts, cheese doodles, and even puzzle pieces express their affections to the everyday world. Terry's artistic vision and fantastic photographic skills create images that you can look at time and time again and marvel at the detail hidden within. The captions to the photographs are witty and fit the images perfectly. This is a great addition to any collection, a birthday gift, or a gift just because you're thinking of someone.

This book is super cute! I have always been a Bent Objects fan and usually view the pics online. What a treat to have this little book! So many creative ideas, with tongue-in-cheek and ironic selections. Even my 7 year old enjoyed the book, although some of the humor didn't register. Definitely recommend Bent Objects!

This book has made the rounds. I read it, my wife read it then my daughter took it home and from there it has gone to the whole extended family. I may never see it again. I was told not to worry, sooner or later it will come home again. Real good lite reading. Super pictures. Very Bent.

But in a good way. Terry gives us a glimpse into the world of zombie peanuts, cheese curls, citrus fruit and others inanimate objects that have more personality than lots of people. The vagaries of love and life are illustrated in ways you aren't likely to forget.

Love his work. I even have an original piece sitting on my desk. Buy all Terry's stuff. I have both my books autographed and doodled by the creator.
