Fliers: 20 Small Posters with Big Thoughts by Nathaniel Russell
Fliers: 20 Small Posters with Big Thoughts
by Nathaniel Russell is a unique gift book with a larger social message. This unexpected book seems like an entertaining coffee table book, but within its pages is a brief commentary of the lack of purpose of life itself and modern society.
I liked the idea of this book, although some of the posters were not really impressive. The effect of this book was somewhat to mimic the effect of a quickly drawn poster. There was little artistic value to these individual posters, but that was probably the point of the author- to capture the essence of a last minute haphazardly drawn poster. This is a quality book with good reproductions of posters on strong card stock paper. This makes them suitable for wall décor; although the content was not too impressive. Overall I felt underwhelmed. But perhaps that is the point of the author, to portray mediocrity and apathy that is so prevalent in this modern day. This might be a good gift to decorate a college dorm room. As a blogger I received a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.
