In Shepard’s own words, “This is the definitive case study, art book, bible of Obey Giant.” He could not be more right. This 350 page, 9″x12″ giant (pun intended), sports a foil embossed cover and is filled to the brim with never before seen images, as well as essays and interviews by Steven Heller, Carlo McCormick, Roger Gastman, Rob Walker, Helen Stickler, and of course Shepard himself. This is definitely a must have book, not just for fans of his work, but for those who maintain an interest in contemporary art period. Pick up your signed copy from the artist’s website…
Small book, big impact, are the four words that encompass Jim Houser’s latest offering. This is one of the most personal artist monographs that I have seen in a long time. Interviews and photo collages, capturing moments of Houser’s life and work, give a great deal of insight to the artist. The letter at the end about his late wife, Rebecca Westcott, was the most touching and hopeful thing I have read in a long time. This is as authentic as it gets. You can pick this one up on our site or come by the gallery.
