ABOUT FLIERS from Penguinrandomhouse.com
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?”
Well, I really didn’t know what to expect from this. A book of 20 fake fliers about nothing. Hilarious? Nope. Thought-provoking? Maybe 1 of them. I was disappointed. I really liked only 2 of the fliers and they weren’t that great.
Maybe I just don’t have the same sense of humor but I wasn’t impressed.
I gave it 2 crowns.
I received this book from http://www.bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for an honest review.
