MORE THINGS LIKE THIS
IMAGE + TEXT + HUMOR = MORE THINGS LIKE THIS
A collaboration with Chronicle Books, More Things Like This explores the intersection of text, humor, and illustration in art created by cartoonists, writers, musicians, and fine artists. The selection features nearly 300 images from dozens of contributors, including David Shrigley, Kurt Vonnegut, Leonard Cohen, Chris Johanson, David Mamet, and many more. Insightful interviews with the artists further illuminate the shared and divergent approaches they take in creating this smart, funny, and engaging work.
Questions posed (implicitly or outright) by this book:
Why is it that so many of these artists can't spell?
What's the line between a doodle, a gag, or a work of fine art?Will there ever come a time when someone doesn't insist on asking these sorts of rhetorical questions?
