Book Review: Fliers

34007969

Official Summary:

The perfect present for buds and dormroom inhabitors, this collection of viral fake fliers is at once strange, thought-provoking, and hilarious. Printed on heavy, cardstock-like paper, these 20 “fake” fliers both celebrate and embody surreal posters–like the kind plastered all over college campuses, only taken to the next level. As a bonus feature, the sturdy paperback comes with a french-fold jacket that, when removed, opens up to reveal a larger poster. Images include a photo of a found duck mistaken for a dog that the poster is now keeping and an anonymous group posting about a quiet universe. There is something in this collection for everyone who ever looked at a postered telephone pole or coffee house bulletin board and wondered “is there more out there?”

Review:

This is less a book and more an…I’m not even sure what to call it. There isn’t much to read, it is exactly what it sounds like. A bunch of college-bulletin-board-esque fakes fliers and posters. Its more like an art project. I will say the art is pretty nice, and its well put together, with nice thick paper and the ability to easily tear out posters to put them elsewhere. Its pretty funny, but odd. If it sounds like something you’ll like, than you probably will, but don’t go in thinking its a proper book or for any explanation behind each flier.
