Editorial Reviews

Review

~Praise for Slinkachu's GLOBAL MODEL VILLAGE~
“The artist Slinkachu’s Little People are now available on printed pages—miniature hand-painted figurines playing out everyday moments on a very small scale. Brilliant.”—The New York Times
 
“[These] tiny figurines are more fully us than any possible full-size models … I love Slinkachu’s works. I hope you will too.”—Will Self
 
[Slinkachu] is interested in…expressing the solitary, uncertain, anxious side of contemporary life—in a way that lets us share in some collective self-deprecating irony about it.”—The Atlantic
 
“There is something incredibly powerful about a tiny, carefully placed figure.”—Slate
 
“British-based Slinkachu is no average street artist. His works are often achingly beautiful, bitingly satirical, and are always very, very small.”—Huffington Post

I had received an email that showed a few scenes from the book, which I had forwarded on to friends. So when I saw that there was an actual book, I grabbed it. It made the perfect token gift for college-age young man (who are hard to buy for w/o spending a lot of money), although it would work for any age or gender.
