Silhouettes from Popular Culture Hardback
by Olly Moss
Olly Moss has quickly become, according to Slashfilm, "one of the most in demand and influential pop culture artists today".
For his simple but brilliant first book, Olly has put his own twist on the Victorian art of silhouette portraits.
While this gorgeous gift volume might look as if it's from the 1890s, its pages contain today's favourite cult characters from movies, TV, comics and videogames.

Review by regularguy5mb
A huge thank you to my friend Patrick for finding this book and giving it to me as a gift. This is solely an art book, a collection of pop culture silhouettes from Olly Moss, who is exceptionally talented. These pieces range from movies and television, to comics and graphic novels. Some of the silhouettes are paired, some individual. He works on themes to match certain actors in different roles or just find interesting connections.Favorites include the Blues Brothers (naturally), all 11 Doctors and a Dalek, Statler and Waldorf (The Muppet Show), The Iron Giant and Hogarth (scaled to size), and the pairing of Maverick and Goose (Top Gun) facing the same way they would in flight.If you like pop culture the way I do, or just interesting art collections, this is a book you'll want on your shelf.
