Editorial Reviews


"...the book also explores Baseman’s mind, room by room. It includes a look at his relevance, his cultural roots, his best known characters (like Toby, the exceedingly well-traveled Fez-wearing leather plush doll), his many inspirations, his obsession with the feminine, and an astounding range of artwork, from illustration to toy design to performance art, all of which is stunningly cohesive, somehow, and consistently uniquely Baseman-esque." ~typo-graphical.com
