sweetestbaboon More than 1 year ago
This wonderful book is both a important testament to & a beautiful celebration of Obama's momentous election. Showcasing art by artists from all over the globe, "Design For Obama" is literally & figuratively a work of art in & of itself. Taschen really did an exquisite job on the printing, the coloring, the paper-stock, the layout, et al. The heft of the book is only surpassed by its beauty. (& I write this not only as an artist whose great honor it is to have some work in the book ("Man of Hope", page 49, & "Baby Got Hope" on 85), but as a connoisseur of fine art books as well.) If you would like to read about the book signing party which was a fabulous shindig & a great opportunity to meet the authors as well as many other artists involved, please visit "very secret monster things" @ www.sweetestbaboon.blogspot.com/
