BOOK REVIEW

RAY GUN by Dean Kuipers
NON-FICTION
Released: June 1, 1997

"The anthology offers a stunning gallery of cutting-edge design, but its highly experimental mix of images and text is likely to make it of interest only to designers and the already initiated."
This anthology drawn from the pages of Ray Gun, one of the most visually idiosyncratic and original music magazines now being published, demonstrates just how consistently inventive and challenging the design of the magazine is but doesn't make the ``new niche cool'' publication any easier to understand.

"A biography by the numbers that never quite adds up. (16 pages b&w photos, not seen)"

BOOK REVIEW

MONDO JAMES DEAN by Richard Peabody
Released: Feb. 1, 1996

"In fact, the immitigably 50's Dean is so stiff and unyielding in story after story that all too often he seems like an interloper at his own homage."
In 23 stories, poems, and jottings, the fifties teen icon gets the full treatment hitherto reserved for Peabody and Ebersole's Mondo tributes to Elvis, Barbie, and Marilyn. Read full book review >
