Review: Fliers

Fliers: 20 small posters with big thoughts by Nathaniel Russell

When I first saw the cover of this book, I thought, that looks like that one Art Assignment. Well, it turns out that’s for good reason: that Art Assignment was created by the author of this book! These are fliers (or flyers) that were created to be more art than utility. You might find them funny, thought-provoking, mildly disturbing, or a variety of other possible things. Some are distinctly Night Vale-esque (which I particularly appreciate) but there are lots of themes taking off on the themes of actual fliers. The former punk rocker in me also really loves the DIY look of these. I remember cutting and pasting (by hand) band posters and zines and these have that same feel. All pages are thick cardstock and designed to easily pull out so you can post them or frame them or whatever suits you.

full disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from Blogging for Books
