    1. I am getting a box together for my Reddit exchange, and found I had bought-this now OOP book. Signed no less! Good karma!

    2. Saw this book when I visited Montreal and promptly forgot the author. I am so glad I found it again. Each painting looks like a victorian photo and comes complete with a bio. It's funny, fantastic and bizarre; a good addition to anyones art book collection.

    3. The paintings/drawings are amazing and the bios are amusing. Presentation is great. Gets a bit repetitive after a while so this is one to browse.
