Boring, not

Found this posted by Art MoCo. In their words... Boring boring boring boring boring boring boring by Zach Plague is anything but. This first novel is a fanstastic satire of youth in the art world that spoofs artists, art schools, collectors, gallerists, art terrorists and just about everyone else. In addition to being a good read into the world of 19 year olds with attitude to spare, Boring Boring is a visual treat. The typography and graphic design are an integral part of the plot. This clever and funny story is also available as a series of posters. The expectation was that the graphic elements would at best take away from the story, or disguise a poorly written one, but Boring Boring is an entertaining romp with a hilarious cast of characters who keep the plot moving along in several different directions.
Maybe this will be in my pile of books to read this summer.
