Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 08, 2013
LA based artist and longtime Juxtapoz friend, Damon Robinson, ("Praise the Lowered" and "Lucha Leisure" mask beanbag chairs) has surprised us yet again with his first "kids" book. The Wonderful Magical Superfantastical Musical Animals, is a graphically sophisticated and beautiful book for the kid in all of us. He deftly challenges our imagination with half animal, half instrument, Victorian style specimens and the music they would play.  You can get some beautiful hand pulled prints and of course the book, for supporting the project on kickstarter.
