Weird and wonderful collages from Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices – accompanied by some of his lyrics, but mostly focusing on full-color reproductions of the original creations! There's a great use of juxtaposition here – images that have a nice sense of surprise, and a good sense of humor, too – not the kind of over-the-top collages you might have seen in the post-Hippie or Brit Marxist years – but a bit more subtle, and with a keen eye for texture, too. The book is full color, about the size of an album cover – but nice and heavy, too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
