    In this highly entertaining book, Lawrence Weschler chronicles the antics of J. S. G. Boggs, an artist whose consuming passion is money, or perhaps more precisely, value. Boggs draws money-paper notes in standard currencies from all over the world-and tries to spend his drawings. It is a practice that regularly lands him in trouble with treasury police around the globe and provokes fundamental questions regarding the value of art and the value of money.

    Tetris and Gorbachev, Magritte and Einstein, Cuneiform tablets and Chicago prisons, lips over Paris and clouds under LA - everywhere he looks, Pulitzer Prize finalist Lawrence Weschler encounters unlikely alignments and beguiling resonances. This generously illustrated phantasmagoria compiles his joyous investigations (shades of Nietzsche's 'joyful wisdom'?) into a compelling set of kinships, 'revealing Pollock in the stars, Rothko on the moon, and themissing links - between neurons and websites, fathers and daughters, war crimes and windmills' - hidden in the open until discovered.

    In this brilliant time capsule of recent world events, celebrated artist Fred Tomaselli intrepidly and colorfully reimagines the front pages of the New York Times. Hurricane Katrina's devastation of New Orleans, the international financial crisis, the Berlusconi scandal, an earthquake in Haiti, the tsunami in Japan, revolution at home and abroad--the headlines of the past decade have been a true roller-coaster ride. Self-proclaimed news junkie Fred Tomaselli has been responding to these earth-shattering events through a fascinating series of artworks collected here for the first time. Tomaselli superimposes his signature psychedelic aesthetic on the front page of the New York Times, setting up a striking contrast between the paper's sober depictions of reality and his vivid interventions. Readers will delight in comparing the actual headlines, captions, and articles that surround the images with Tomaselli's trippy, highly detailed interpretations. Filled with gorgeous reproductions of works that range from tongue in-cheek satire to unmitigated outrage, this timely volume is certain to appeal to art lovers as well as street-smart consumers of today's headline news.
