I Am Plastic, Too: The Next Generation of Designer Toys
The designer toy explosion continues in Kidrobot’s second book, I Am Plastic, Too, which features a worldwide survey of the newest, rarest, and most sought-after toys. By offering designers, comic book artists, illustrators, and graffiti artists a new outlet for their creative energies, these toys become miniature works of art, collected and coveted by fans everywhere. Showcasing examples from more than 140 artists and companies from six continents, this book includes images of scarce, limited-edition toys and extensive interviews with 13 of the hottest designers working today. Many of the most popular creators from the first book are back, along with new faces such as Amanda Visell, Brandt Peters, eBoy, Jon Burgerman, Kathie Olivas, and Tara McPherson.
Praise for I Am Plastic, Too:
"The scope of these plastic critters, which range from the abstract to the downright lewd . . . is wonderfully surveyed." --The New York Times
