All the good stuff* from “The Prince of Pop Art” Encompassing everything from doodles

in school books to tour de force museum masterpieces, stunning illustrations from Playboy to the New York Times and sold-out fancy pants gallery show strokes of genius from Hollywood to Tokyo, this magnum opus is sure to be revered as “the greatest collection of art ever produced!”

* the crappy art is under lock and key

Mitch O’Connell has somehow has been able to make a living as a freelance artist. His big shot editorial clients include Rolling Stone, Newsweek (4 covers! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!), GQ, Entertainment Weekly, The New Yorker and Juggs! Mitch has designed advertising campaign art for Coke, McDonalds, KFC, Kellogs plus many more. In-between paying jobs he creates fine art masterpieces that adorn gallery walls (the trick he’s working on now is to get folks to buy ‘em and hang ‘em on their own walls). He’s exhibited from New York to Chicago, to Germany to Miami

“Beautiful color drawings. Mitch O’Connell is a master of skin-deep kitsch” – Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly “A Genius! Wild and Witty!” – the Chicago Tribune to Tokyo to Hollywood to Mexico to wherever there’s a gallery located where he wants an excuse to vacation (Hello Paris!). Also in his spare time, Mitch creates popular tattoo designs. The next time you’re in a tattoo shop looking for something to have etched on your skin, check out the flash on the walls for some of his brilliant work. If you don’t see his doodles, Mitch recommends tipping your hat in a gruff manner and exclaiming, “Good day Sir!” as you depart. Yes, you say, we all know about his superstar accomplishments, what about the man himself? Is he as wise, dreamy and sexy as he looks? Yes, yes and YES!

Let me tell ’ya, he’s a man of simple pleasures. He loves to hang in there, hang loose, hang ten and let it all hang out, keep it real and keep on trucking, do his own thing, chill out, mellow out, kick back, take care of business, keep on keeping on, get his groove on, take a load off, reach for the stars, hear where you’re coming from because he really cares about you as a person (and my is it hot in here and wouldn’t you feel more comfortable undressed my special lady?), do what he’s got to do, mellow out and rock on, long walks, sunsets, holding hands, good friends and good times!! Favorite pastime? Spreading joy wherever he goes.

This is the great, untold story of the 1980s and ’90s From Fight Club to Burning Man, flash mobs to Santarchy, Cacophony influenced everything subversive, playful and anti-authoritarian in popular culture over the last 20 years.

A template for pranksters, artists, adventurers and anyone interested in rampant creativity, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society is the history of the most influential underground cabal you’ve never heard of.

Rising from the ashes of the mysterious and legendary Suicide Club, the Cacophony Society, at its zenith, hosted chapters in over a dozen major cities, and influenced much of what was once called the underground. foreword by chuck palahniUk Edited by Kevin Evans, Carrie Galbraith and John Law

The Cacophony Society’s epic exploits radically changed the way people live and play in the world. The group inspired Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club and Burning Man and helped start pop culture trends including flash mobs, urban exploration, and culture jamming. A large-format, full-color, hardbound homage to this protean group, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society is packed with original art, never before published photographs, original documents and incredulous news accounts. over 500 color and b&w images 50 full-color illustrations hardcover · 320 pages 8½ x 11 978-0-86719-774-7 $39.95


Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society

B efore the Internet vomited headlines by the millisecond and turned the minutia of a million boring Facebook lives into news, we were left the privilege of mystery. This was something The San Francisco Cacophony Society gave me in spades. Over the years, I would catch glimpses, collect pieces of a puzzle I was slowly assembling—a car crushed flat by an earthquake miraculously tooling down Golden Gate, toasters glued to buildings, news-clips of mock protests and costumed impostors, flyers for strange art spectacles. Now the puzzle is assembled in this gorgeous graphic collection, a book every lover of eccentricity and enemy of the status quo should enjoy. —Margaret Cho


Cacophony events could range from something as simple as climbing the Golden Gate Bridge or having a discussion over drinks about a movie seen together, to something as elaborate as The Atomic Café—an event involving a hundred bedraggled “nuclear holocaust survivors” mounting elaborate costumed rituals throughout the bowels of an abandoned toothpaste factory. Yes… Cacophony was that strange.


The Cacophony Society is a randomly gathered network of individuals united in the pursuit of experiences beyond the pale of mainstream soceity through subversion, pranks, art, fringe explorations and meaningless madness. YOU MAY ALREADY BE A MEMBER!


“I love Liz’s mystical, magical, creations. They are the kind of creatures I want to keep company with. They make me happy.” —Ma rk Ry den Incurable Disorder is Elizabeth McGrath’s second full-length monograph, including works from 2005 to 2012. From dioramas to mixed media paintings to three-dimensional sculptures, each piece is infused with deep meaning: historical narratives, cultural references, and environmental statements, while teeming with the charm, dazzle and beauty of a lovingly crafted—and lovable—object. McGrath has always had an eye for the strange beauty in the grotesqueries of life; this appreciation is nowhere more evident than in her new works. She brings forth a new cavalcade of creatures from the darker corners of the streets, the city, and the imagination.

Self-taught, McGrath has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums in the US and Europe including the American Visionary Art Museum and the Bristol City Museum and Gallery. Her first book, “Everything That Creeps,” was published in 2005. McGrath lives in Downtown Los Angeles with her husband, artist Morgan Slade; their daughter, Sadie Valentine Slade; and hairless chihuahuas Blue and King Tut. Incurable Disorder hardcover · 176 pages 200 full-color images 9¼ x 12 ¼ 978-0-86719-776-1 $39.95 Available in June 2013


Incurable Disorder

The Art of Elizabeth McGrath Introductions by Morgan Spurlock and Alix Sloan

Elizabeth

McGrath creates sweetlytwisted creatures. She gives life to her imagination’s strange brain-children by sculpting their countenances in a wide range of materials. McGrath has an uncanny knack for creating dark, edgy, fantastical works layered with beauty, angst and significance.

Influenced by the relationship between the natural world and the detritus of consumer culture, she sculpts and paints endearing and often tragic beings, adorning them with cloth, paint, paper, gold leaf, rhinestones, shells and found objects. Often, these creations live in, or house, detailed dioramas.


McGrath’s first book, Everything That Creeps, is also available

The first collected work of the LA underground art world’s favorite wunderkind, Elizabeth McGrath. Full-color photos and detail shots reveal the exquisitely complex details of her sweetly twisted creatures, giving a glimpse of what the Island of Misfit Toys might have become had it been saved by Satan rather than Santa. An illustrated look at a dark little girl’s haunted wonderland. Everything That Creeps 112 pages, color, 9 x 12” • Hardcover $34.95

Pelu, the cute and fluffy gigolo from

outer space, is back, determined to find himself true happiness in the form of a human bride. Pelu’s quest to have a child continues to unfold across a surreal Tokyo cityscape populated by mythological creatures, loveable losers, living puppets, nymphomaniacs, and a visitor from Pelu’s own home world. Will Pelu finally gain the confidence to woo a bride? Can Pelu finally find a girl willing to stick around long enough to have his baby? In volume 1, our hero’s search took him from the surface of his fantastic alien planet to an off-kilter modern Japan. Artist Junko Mizuno unleashes her unique graphic storytelling sensibilities on a tale that’s frequently adorable, sometimes grotesque, and surprisingly moving.

winner: New Artist award at the 13th annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize

Set in 1920s Japan, the story follows

the twisted path of failed novelist Hitomi, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the son of a rich industrialist. Hitomi learns of the rich man’s sudden death and creates a desperate plan, successfully impersonating the now-dead son. Hitomi takes over all aspects of the industrialist’s life, including his company, his fortune, and eventually his wife. There he redirects the family’s wealth to his own perverse aims.

On a remote and mysterious island, he builds for himself a playground of hedonistic excess—replete with waterfalls, grand palaces, and gardens, and decadent feasts, orgies, and dark secrets.

“Attempts at pinning down Jennybird’s style would be like trying to lasso a flying Jaybird.” —Hi Fructose magazine “Jennybird Alcantara’s world is like nothing you’ve ever seen. The attribution of human characteristics to animals or nonliving things has existed in literature and films for hundreds of years, but Alcantara carries the contemporary creative torch for anthropomorphism.” —Inked Magazine Never known for following the consensus of any art establishment, Chuck Sperry has a strict loyalty to his craft, and has become a leading innovator of the rock poster art form. His suspicion and disdain for mainstream American politics often characterizes his approach to making art. With a sincere dedication to a broad public audience, Sperry reflects a social consicousness and draws much from the immediate urban environment. —Renee de Cossio, curator, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Over 60 posters from the career of rock poster legend Chuck Sperry, plus a lengthy interview with the artist. Includes studio shots and a short Sperry bio. High Volume The Art of Chuck Sperry From the 1990s to 2012 Compiled by Sergio E. Daniszewski, Luis M. Corrales Ruiz, Andres I.

HEDGEHOG IN THE FOG Hedgehog in the Fog is an internationally acclaimed story about the adventures of a philosophical little Hedgehog on his way to meet with his friend Bear. Along the way Hedgehog enters into a mysterious fog in which he encounters a horse, a dog, an owl, and a fish. The book is based on Francesca Yarbusova’s sketches for the award-winning animated film directed by Yuri Norstein. In 2003, an international film jury in Tokyo declared Hedgehog in the Fog to be the best animated film of all time.

“Norstein’s films are magical and atmospheric, lovingly and masterfully executed. His story-telling and illustration style is earthy and rich in symbols which are beautiful in themselves – but one senses there is a lot more hidden behind them.” – Nick Park, Oscar-winning creator of Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run

NEW BOOKS • ART The bestselling book on Banksy’s origins is now in paperback. This edition was published to celebrate the artist’s return to his home city with his ‘Banksy vs Bristol Museum’ exhibition, and includes artwork from that show. Bristol-born Banksy needs no introduction; he is already a legend in his own lifetime. Everyone seems to have a Banksy story, usually involving a missed opportunity to buy some of the artist’s work when it was still cheap. The book collects together images of most of the street art Banksy made in the city during his formative years. Many of these images were previously unpublished and the collection remains the most thorough collection of Banksy’s early works.

This is the second volume of the Invasion of Paris. The previous vol-

L’INVASION DE PARIS

ume recorded the first 500 space invaders put up in Paris in the years 1998–2003; this one presents the next 500, over the period 2003–11. This book has been produced from start to finish by Invader, who states that his invasion guides are an integral part of his work. More than a simple book of photographs, this is a genuine manual, a precise and functional guide which reveals the works by the artist disseminated around the City of Light: archives, maps, an index, and, above all, more than a thousand photos make it an unusual object offering multiple points of entry.

L’INVASION DE PARIS 2.0: PROLIFERATION Hardcover, 256p, 8x10.5" English / French Color Photographs 978-2-9541259-0-9, $35.00

It remains only to hope that you enjoy your read, or rather, your exploration of Paris and of Invader’s work.
