    Product description

    The acclaimed musician and filmmaker, David Byrne, has made his mark once again, gracing the pages of The New York Times, T Magazine, and even appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. His latest project, a groundbreaking book, offers a fresh perspective on everyday life and shared human experiences that is both timely and influential. 

    Byrne's new artwork showcases his remarkable ability to creatively explore the mundane aspects of daily life, bringing to light unexpected insights with his signature wit and humor. The book features a stunning collection of figurative drawings that were crafted during the artist's time in quarantine. Drawing inspiration from the dingbat, a typographic ornament, Byrne ingeniously uses this form to delve into the complexities of life under lockdown and the far-reaching impact of the pandemic. 

    The book, edited and designed by Alex Kalman in close collaboration with Byrne, is an exceptional reflection on the human experience and how it continues to evolve over time. With its unique illustrations and thought-provoking insights, this book is a must-read for anyone seeking a fresh perspective on the world around us.
