Meat America

Apparently, Dominic Episcopo never got the memo that you're not supposed to play with your food. In fact, it would appear he was given the exact opposite set of instructions as a youngster. Luckily, the meat artist (not a sexual innuendo) got extra playful with his new book "Meat America." The visually hunger-inducing ... continue reading

101 Essential Rock Records

101 Essential Rock Records is, as you might have expected, a book about 101 rock records that are, well, essential. It's all about the golden age of vinyl from The Beatles "Please Please Me" to the Sex Pistols' "Never Mind the Bollocks." It's an impressive collection regardless, but what we find most interesting is ... continue reading

Terrywood

We've got two big thumbs up for Terrywood. The latest book from photographer/dude-every-guy-wants-to-be, is a compilation of all his work that was on display in his Terrywood show from earlier this year.
