Description

"Full Vinyl" covers mass-produced popular favorites (such as "Homies"), sub-culture figures, Anime-inspired figures (such as Bome), category-defining "thingies", Hong Kong luminaries (such as Eric So and Michael Lau), figures based on the work of hugely popular artists (such as Gary Baseman or Yoshitomo Nara), and artists that take figure making to the next level (such as Shinichi Yamashita). This volume includes interviews with selected creators, and discussions on topics including aesthetics and the significance of the work for an older audience of collectors. The catalogue will include captioning for each figure, including licensing and distribution information.
