Editorial Reviews

Review

"Fielding's visual art is not a million miles away from the disturbing world of Nabootique he and Barratt create in The Mighty Boosh and it's no surprise that his depictions of talking crocodiles, Mick Jagger and disturbing fox-men—Matt Groening meets Hieronymous Bosch—have become highly prized collectibles."  —Evening Standard


"The boy can paint. What's more, his offbeat, pop-art pictures are seriously commercial. Stylistically, it's somewhere between Henri Rousseau and Tov Jansson, creator of The Moomins."  —Independent

I love this book. I did not really know what it was when I ordered online, I'm a fan of Fielding's and it seemed fun and a treat. It's a fun book, a coffee table book. Every page is completely different with a sneak preview into Fielding's mind and imagination, and it certainly is a colourful and weird place. I like to open a page randomly and dissect it for a while, some make you smile and others just make you say, "This man is on drugs." It's not a fine arts book, and I am no art connoisseur, but you don't buy it for the art although there is good technique, rather more just the ideas transcended through it. It does demonstrate a lot of hard work and careful observation. A lot of hours have gone into making this book and you cannot help but indulge in it.
If you get the particular Boosh comedy it certainly is a plus, but I think most people with an open mind and appreciation for humour and individuality will love flicking through the pages of this book. It inspires me to strive for something unique and non-traditional, what this book certainly is not. Great add to my library. And it blows my mind periodically.

Genius writing, brilliant art work and general hilarity.
A must-have for any Boosh fan.

Now if there were only a CD of music from the show...I need Electro Boy in my iTunes...

This is Noel's soul basically spread into a book. You have to be careful with the pages though because the paper is thin. The hard cover is puffy which is kinda cool.

Upon buying this book I wasn't really sure what I purchased. I knew it Had Noel's artwork in it but not much else. This is a book for mainly fans though unless your just an extremely opened minded person who loves everything. I love this book and plan to carry it with me like a Jesus freak carry's a bible.

Absolutely not a serious book, it's perfect for when you just need a break from the world and it's good material to get some creative ideas flowing. Perfect condition. Didn't have to wait too long for shipping. LOVE this book!

Officially the funniest book I have ever read. I already loved Noel & his art tons prior to reading Scribblings, but this is an all new level. Definitely get this; it's worth the while.
