Goodreads Summary:

The perfect present for bros 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 comes with a french-fold jacket that, when removed, opens up to reveal a larger poster. Images include a duck posting about the pet dog he found and an anonymous group posting about a quiet universe. There is something in this collection for everyone who ever looked at a postered telephone pole or coffee house bulletin board and wondered “is there more out there?”

My Review:

This book had a really cool setup. There are these fliers inside, and if you choose you can peel them out and display them wherever you would like.

The problem I had were the fliers themselves. The pictures were interesting, but the stuff that was written with each flier, I just didn’t find humorous. Maybe it all just went over my head. I’m sure lots of people will find the book unique, and I wouldn’t mind seeing more books like this, but I wanted a little more from this book.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
