This is the official page for the artist Frank Kozik. Our Firefighters risk their lives everyday for us and they deserve anything that helps them, cope and reduce stress. Plus Edna deserves a home. I would consider it a personal favor.

But, I'm unconvinced that the book is spoilt by its overproduction. But on the other hand, isn't this brilliant pop art gaudiness exactly what Kozik's artwork is all about? I'd liken this to the headache of hanging a baroque or Queen Vickie period painting: yes, we the modern, general viewing public may yearn to see the work hung on a clean, white wall-as art for art's sake-but an art historian would want.

There was one part of the description that sold this book to me: "Kozik shares all the secrets of this arcane and cutting-edge art movement in Plasticland". That led me to expect some text about Kozik's process. Some short essay from Kozik himself, perhaps. Unfortunately, there's nothing of the sort in this book. Just photos of vinyl toys and a couple graphic designs. No secrets shared here; there are dozens of designer-vinyl-oriented web sites that offer almost as much. I feel misled. If I wanted only photos of toys, I could have downloaded them. I will be returning this book because the description was so misleading. Very underwhelming compared to other Dark Horse publications I own. If you want photos of Kozik toys, this is for you. If you want to know about the secrets of this "art movement" you'd better look elsewhere.

Naughty plastic characters smoking. Hubby prefers older Kozik stuff (he's such a hipster) but daughter and I enjoy the images, The book it a valued addition to our art book collection.

If you are a fan of Kozik's vinyl toys this is a must have. It's a fairly comprehensive collection of his vinyl work, including labbits, Dr. Bombs, dunnys, and dictator busts, all well photographed. While it is lacking in text, any Kozik toy collector would be happy to put this on the shelf next to their redrum dunny.
