"...if there is one book to get in 2011, James Jean: Rebus a showstopper." -Juxtapoz
'Moving, disturbing, inspiring.' --Darren Aronofsky on James Jean
About the Author
James Jean was born in Taiwan in 1979 and currently lives in Los Angeles. He graduated from New York City's School of Visual Arts in 2001. Highlights of his groundbreaking illustration career include work for such clients as the New York Times, Atlantic Records, and Nike, as well as a series of elaborate wallpaper installations for fashion icon Prada. Since 2007, Jean has focused his career on fine art painting, book projects, and gallery exhibitions.

Bottom line: This is an awesome work. Great for artist inspiration or simply casual exploration. On that note, I'd recommend getting both Rebus as well as Fables Covers if you want a comprehensive "one two" punch of James Jean art!
I have to reiterate that the art is top notch. I have about 40 fine art books and this is a standout in the sheer number of quality, highly varied executions. At $31 (5/3/15) for this hardcover book, it is without a doubt something I'd recommend to anyone interested in any kind of art book. The value is simply unmatched.
I was most looking forward to the illustrations Jean did for Prada, but was highly irritated by their presentation in this book. I am aware they are large and sprawling, but I figured it would turn into a large pullout (like Rift). Instead, it was hacked to pieces and put onto pages, where the flow was completely lost. In other illustrations the binding made it impossible to view the whole of the image, and in one of the Prada pictures in particular there is a figure sitting on a flower and the figure is 50% lost due to the binding.
In all, it is a wonderful collection of his work, but it could have done with 35% of them pullouts, at least, if you wanted to fully appreciate the composition.
