About the Author
Annie Owens and Attaboy are co-founders of Hi-Fructose Under the Counter Culture Magazine. Their art has been shown in numerous galleries, museums, and publications.
This is probably one of the best artbooks you can buy for yourself. My wife and I are big fans of Audrey Kawasaki and this book comes with a case that holds 1 audrey print (which even as a artbook print sells for more than the book does on ebay apparently) and a few other prints, along with a poster. My wife and I were so impressed by the book, and some of the artists we had never seen before, I went online and subscribed to the magazine... and ordered 3 more copies of this book. Sounds crazy I know, but 1 copy is for the coffee table, my wife likes 1 copy in her crafting area for inspriation, I have 1 copy to cut into prints for the walls here and there and 1 copy purely for archival purposes.
You will not be disappointed by this book. I know art is in the eye of the beholder, but there are so many artists in this that you are bound to find one that you like.
Wow... I truly cannot say how amazing this book is. It was well worth each and every penny spent, and it certainly never going to be anywhere further than my living room library. The images are immaculate, and the interviews are inspiring and full of such great information on the artists. I highly recommend this to art lovers alike...you will not be disappointed.
As usual, this compilation consists of uncountable number of great works by artists spanning different styles & techniques in art-making. The box set and prints are really high quality. Very good reference book to own if you're an artist yourself. Not something I'd ever regret buying.
This book is a steal with everything it comes with! Its not just the book, you also get three sticker sheets, a large poster, and several very nice embossed glossy prints! If you look on ebay there are sellers asking for way more than amazon is! Get it while it is still available they are no longer making this special set!
