Fliers and the Art Of Being Clever
Something I noticed about clever fliers posted around neighborhoods: they usually start in areas of, say, SF or NYC, then trickle down to other hipster-ish neighborhoods at the expected rate of virality. Whether you’re looking for fodder to post in your area or just reminiscing on what’s been posted all over your hood the last few years, Fliers: 20 Small Posters With Big Thoughts by Nathaniel Russell will be fun to flip through.
The collection parodies telephone pole fliers of all genres: lost pets, help wanted, for sale, missing… you name it. They are on heavy card stock, so you could disassemble the book and post them around if you like. (Bonus: the cover also folds out – we’ll let you find out what it is on your own.) No, it isn’t the kind of book that will take you hours to peruse but it is worthwhile for connoisseurs of pop culture as an archive of a particular bit of ephemera.
Also a great holiday gift for that friend who always finds the memes a few months after you do.
