Book: I Am Plastic
I Am Plastic is a new book from the founder of KidRobot which documents the history of the designer toy over the last ten years. We write about Kidrobot all the time on PSFK and this should be an important book that documents a huge cultural trend which is still evolving. The Amazon blurb says:
I Am Plastic provides a colorful visual history of the phenomenon, which has energized not only the toy world but the global art community as well. Fashion designers, comic book artists, underground illustrators, graffiti and fine artists now lend their creativity to the task of coming up with innovative and striking new toy designs. Artists and toys featured in this stunning overview include Frank Kozik, Dalek, Gary Baseman, Bounty Hunter, Junko Mizuno, Jason Siu, Devilrobots, and Pete Fowler.
