Marcel Dzama has changed everything about art that involves alligators and men in bear costumes holding guns. Dzama is from Winnipeg, and his work shows frequently in New York and on Beck's album covers. Sometimes he paints with root beer. This book -- it's not even a book at all, really -- is an envelope with 32 loose-leaf prints good enough to frame; plus a scrapbook; plus an insert card; plus an introduction by Sarah Vowell, recently brought back into existence after a long absence -- and it's a wonderfully multifaceted introduction to the work of a really amazing artist.
This boxed set is an amazing piece and would stand as an amazing gift too. You'll not go wrong here. Especially with the discount that amazon is offering.
Marcel is one of the premier artists of our time. His work will last and haunt you for years to come.
I'm going to venture that the other two reviewers below received probably the few copies that are bound to have a printing error or two. My copy is perfect and flawless. The prints have a weight to them and are totally suitable for framing.
I think people should review Marcel's work. Not the state of their copy. What they did by giving his work one star is discredit his work. What they need to do is return the copy as damaged and get a new copy and properly review that. It's not Dzama's fault or an inconsistency in his work itself that they are feeling negative about, it was clearly a printing issue with their copy. Giving this book one star is wrong. Fix the problem before you write about it.
Not only do you get around three dozen high quality copies, but you also get an interesting small sketchbook. Dzama and the Royal Art Lodge have been producing several artist style books over the last few years, they are all fun, and this one is just another of the same. I enjoy collecting and playing with Dzamas books and this is one of the more interesting ones.
