Overview

Known worldwide as a creative darling, Mike Perry’s celebrated DIY style of hand-drawn rendering has influenced a generation of contemporary designers and illustrators. 

Though Perry publishes zines, runs a magazine, makes clothing, has curated three successful books, and has painted, sculpted, silk-screened, and drawn on anything and everything, Wondering Around Wandering is his first monograph. And, in tune with his whimsical nature, this book functions as a true artist’s book. Perry has carefully designed each page of this book, placing old work next to new and sometimes even reworking old work to make it new again. With explosive fluorescent colors, various paper stocks, and five four-page zines bound into the book, this volume is an object that must be experienced. 

With his playful approach to life and art, it is no surprise that Perry is considered the grandfather (or grandson) of this aesthetic. Artists, designers, hip trendsetters, children, the young-at-heart, and anyone interested in DIY culture will treasure this amazing project.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In tune with his whimsical nature, this book functions as a true artist’s book. Perry has carefully designed each page of this book, placing old work next to new and sometimes even reworking old work to make it new again.” ~Grain Edit
 
“It’s a wormhole of escape from the mundane into a timeless place of creativity. Just slap it wherever you need freedom, and slip right through to the other side. There are few artist’s books that you can truly call, “fun for all ages.” I can flip through this book with my kids and revel beside them in the lines of colors and textures and share tales of our making inspired by the images on the pages.” ~Big Think
