Coffe Table Status

There are a slew of great hardback books dropping these days, perfect for those collectors on your holiday gift list or just resting on your coffee table. A couple of things that struck me was a new book on vinyl figures which my cousin, aerosol artist and vinyl toy make East 3 is in called "I Am Plastic Too".

The other thing that caught my attention was A Bathing Apes founder Nigo(who is a collector of all things fresh)and has been a devoted book enthusiast for many years has a pop up book store opening soon. Running for a limited period from December 15, 2010 to January 30, 2011 the shop will be devoted to books on design, culture, and art, with speculations on a host of the rarest books on the subjects published in the early 90’s from NIGO’s own personal collection.
