From the publisher:
Dreamland is a collection of Todd Schorr's best work to date. This beautiful hardcover edition joins Anima Mundi and The Book of Joe in the rise of the new artistry: from "lowbrow art" beginnings, a new school of fine art has emerged. Todd Schorr's formative years were spent surrounded by the atomic and space ages; by Saturday morning cartoons and racks of comic books; by Revell models, Mad Magazine, Testors glue, Mickey Mouse, and Rat Fink. The compulsion to replicate these images led to a formal art education and exposure to a new set of influences drawn from the world of advertising and commercial art.
