I can classify this book as a hipster reads because geometric art is so damn in with hipsters now, right? Well, if it’s geometry you want, then it’s geometry you get with this nerdy, geeky, hipster-ish collection.
This preview of Index Book will definitely get you excited to buy one:
Big Appetites, Tiny People in a World of Big Food
Giant imaginations and tiny people definitely match. Add food to that and you’ve got a combination that’s so perf, you just gotta buy the book.
Christopher Boffoli definitely nailed it with this one.
Outside the Lines: An Artists’ Coloring Book for Giant Imaginations
This book is exciting! It features over a hundred artists and their illustrations. I’m talking about animators, cartoonists, graphic artists, fine artists, illustrators, photographers, street artists (including Shepard Fairey), video game artists, even musicians.
And yes, this is actually a coloring book so feel free to go cray cray with your crayons! This way, you can collaborate with these artists as well. Ain’t that cool? Totes!
