Fliers is a book made out of 20 mini posters. They are all in the style of help wanted, sale signs, missing posters, miscellaneous parody posters. Each poster has it's own theme, Each poster brings a smile to my face. Every poster makes me want to stick it around my town or put it in all the free libraries here. (If that's something I could do.)
A final note, there is a silly surprise under the dust jacket. Once I realized what it was it made me giggle.
If you interest in Fliers or the interesting artwork you can check out Russells website for info on his latest work. Even check out some more fake fliers.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
Being an Animal Person, my favorite posters are those modeled on “lost dog” fliers, in part because they’re a lot more whimsical and lighthearted than their sad and tragic cousins. “Found Dog” is the sort of thing I’ve fantasized about posting, and “The Opposite of Lost” is the plot of what could be an amazing, vegan-friendly animal uprising flick. (Think Planet of the Apes, minus the inter-species speciesism.)
A few of the posters fell flat with me, but overall this is a pretty kickarse collection. Many of the prints – or variations thereof – are available for perusal on the author’s website. Some aren’t even in the book, but should have been. (“I wish I was born an animal support system network,” I’m looking at you!)
As for the practical design of the book, the posters are printed on heavy cardstock, perfect for framing, hanging, displaying, etc. Though it’s a paperback (kind of), the book comes with a dust jacket that unfolds to reveal – wait for it – a photo of a telephone pole.
Whether you choose to regard it as a book of art or a collection of posters, Fliers is a neat little thingamajiggie.
