Others take a conceptually "messy" approach, creating works that cause public outrage, or manipulate typically taboo imagery or themes. In the spirit of the theme of the issue, Beautiful/Decay got a little messy themselves, using a playfully "messy" approach to the page layouts, including crumpling photos and creating a custom typeface of childhood favorite construction materials: googly eyes, popsicle sticks and puff balls.
Special features include: hand signed silkscreen mini print by Cody Hoyt. Each copy of Beautiful Decay: Book 2 comes with a dazzling taco and fruit loop eating glue-sniffing guru print by Cody Hoyt. On the back, each mini-poster is hand signed and hand numbered by the artist! Sticker Insert: custom collaborative sticker featuring a rock n' roll wookie/ Bigfoot character by Moritz Schleime. French flaps & Gatefold: Book 2's front and back lining gatefold of the book opens out to stunning three part geometric diagrams, abstracting photos of the artists and their studios into a dizzying digital display replete with a secret code!
Plus each and every copy of Book 2's exclusive 1,500 print run is hand numbered.
