Humorous and masterful, Mitch O’Connell: the World’s Best Artist by Mitch O’Connell, (Last Gasp Publishing) is a career-spanning retrospective of work from the king of kitsch, Mitch O’Connell. This full-color, 284 page tome—resplendent with a foam-filled, vinyl, glitter-enhanced cover—collects all the good stuff (the crappy art is under lock and key) from this prolific pop artist. If you appreciate the finer things in life, such as beehives, boobs, and big-eyed kittens, you will not want to miss this book.
