I bought this book because I wanted to know more about this artist, his work and maybe gain a little insight into his creative process. What I got was an unfocused hodgepodge with few insights or specifics and no apparent organizational strategy. And there were surprisingly few good pictures. Basically a not very interesting coffee table book about a very interesting artist.

First of all, I have to say that I LOVE Trimpin's work. I have been fortunate enough to see the work in person, which is truly the ONLY way one can experience his work - period. Trimpin is an artist who is hard to describe, pin point, etc. His work is constantly evolving - organically - so I can see that this book was truly a labor of love for the publisher. I personally found the book to be quite informative, but I was aware of his work and process before so perhaps that helped? Trimpin has said himself that he isn't interested in recording his work, etc so trying to convey the work in book form is always going to be a little tough. If you like Trimpin and his work, you should own this book.
Most of all I'm excited to see that Trimpin is gaining recognition (both in his adopted hometown of Seattle, as well as all over the country and world). I know he has a gallery show coming up - a sign of things to come? I hope. For his sake.
