I waited almost 2 months to get this book because it was out of stock. When I received my package in the mail, I had completely forgot I ordered it. What an amazing little book it turned out to be. "Little People in the City: The Street Art of Slinkachu" explores the photography and the world in a way that few have seen (literally). Every page presents itself with a new image composition with little 5 millimeter sized people interacting with the world of humans. In addition to the amazing & cleverly composed scenes, sharp & well shot photography and the uniqueness overall, Slinkachu presents a message in each of his pieces. Some may be straight forward while others take an extra person to help ya out with. All in all, this book is one of the best coffee table books I've purchase. Check out "Little People in the City: The Street Art of Slinkachu" blog to see photos that weren't included in the book. Buy this book. It's only a few dollars and will support a fine photographer at the same time as it will enlighten your enjoyment. Good luck and Happy Shopping.
The only reason I'm rating it a 4 star is because of quality of the book itself. It's all matte printed, which might actually fit well with the photos (hard to say without seeing a photo printed comparison), but does seem a bit underwhelming viscerally. The overall product quality seems decent, but paper and print quality just aren't awesome. All that being said for under $11 it's not a bad deal, and certainly the best way to appreciate Slinkachu's art in full.
I saw this book at the SFMOMA bookstore, along with Little "People in the City: The Street Art of Slinkachu." I do feel a tad guilty about turning to amazon.com to purchase these books and not supporting the MOMA directly; I'm also curious if this effects the percentage the authors receive? That aside, I give top marks to amazon for offering these books as a pair, eerily intuitive folks! The books themselves are of excellent quality, the photos are beautiful. I shared these books with a number of people who all got a hearty laugh out of this style of miniature art. They arrived in good order as promised, thanks amazon!
