The perfect present for buds and dormroom inhabitors, this collection of viral fake fliers is at once strange, thought-provoking, and hilarious. Printed on heavy, cardstock-like paper, these 20 "fake" fliers both celebrate and embody surreal posters--like the kind plastered all over college campuses, only taken to the next level. As a bonus feature, the sturdy paperback co ...more

Some people can look at a piece of toast and see Jesus. Or perhaps they find a Mother Teresa-shaped potato chip. Then you have people who cannot live without memes: dank memes, shit posting, pop culture reflection, social media masturbation, and so on. 

If you're either of these types of people, you'll like this silly little book. I honestly can't believe it's a thing that exists, but hey, a fool and his dollar are easily separated. Not this fool, tho, because I was given a copy of this "book" by

I love the concept for this book, 20 pages which can be removed from the book and used as posters. The images and fonts (or printing) used are superb, very eye-catching. I was not, however, captured by the posters' messages. Even though quirky and interesting, the messages of the posters were not all that great to me. Some people may enjoy them, but they did not strike me as good. The lack of theme throughout did not help. Even so, the posters messages just did not appeal to me, leave me chuckli ...more

This book was interesting and kind of quirky, and I enjoyed the concept. The artist has a lot of potential for fun artwork, and I loved the concept of being able to tear out the posters and put them up somewhere—some of them really made me laugh or smile, and I really appreciate that. Some of the posters are Night Vale-esque, and they are worth having. My favorite was probably the one that adorns the cover, of a lost cat that appears as an "infinite ball of light hurtling through time and space. ...more

This is a neat book with odd posters inside it. They each have a different poster with odd sayings on it. I loved this book. It is a great addition to your shelves if you like funny and silly books. I am so glad I was given this to read and review from Blogging For Books exchange for an honest review. It was a pick me up I needed right now. I hope you will check it out for yourself. My favorite poster is the one with the awesome cat with bright eyes.

5/5 stars
Happy Reading, Ashley

Fliers is less of a book, and more of an art piece. Ranging from silly to existential, these posters are definitely something that would turn heads around the neighborhood. (Or passed by unnoticed on an art school campus.) I enjoyed it, but I wish there were more than 20. I especially loved the built-in lamppost poster.

I wanted this book because I got a new job and need something to spice up the office. This looked amusing.

I'd say this best has a home with anyone who loves contemporary art museums because as damn funny as it is, it's also that clever. It's one of the few books of that nature I'd consider a wonderful gift idea because the posters are easily removed and hung up. It is exactly what it says it is.

Calm down party. We're just going to eat some sandwiches by the creek. All summer long.

Burn your house down. Start over tomorrow while there's still time. This is what I'm talking about.

This was a very strange book but it was funny too. The book is made up of posters, on card stock that you can pull out and post if you are feeling the urge. They are funny, sarcastic, too-true posters about lost pets, life, and needed to get away. They include photos and text that looks hand done and very realistic. I am not really sure what I am going to do with this book now that I have read it. Deep down it bothers me that you have the ability to tear it apart and post them if you are feeling ...more

Is it a book? An art project? A new life philosophy? All of the above?

(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review through Blogging for Books.)

Nathaniel Russell's Fliers: 20 Small Posters with Big Thoughts is exactly what it says it is - a book of mini tear-out posters with Big - and sometimes Absurd - Ideas. Based on the sort of fliers that litter/decorate telephone poles, community billboards, and other public spaces, Russell's art pairs a simple, minimalist aesthetic with
