Just picked up this book and I'm immediately transfixed by so many favorite artists: Raymond Pettibon, Marcel Dzama, Tucker Nichols, Shel Silverstein, etc. Plus a whole bunch of artists I'd never heard of. The overall effect is smart and funny. It's like entering a different world. Highlights include Chris Johanson and the Tucker Nichols fold out cover. Dave Eggers does it again...
