Volume two is similarly filled with Shopsin's whimsical line drawings and deadpan conundrums that play on everyday mishaps. An eclectic gem, this small giftworthy paperback comprises a series of 49 elegant doodles that combine Shopsin's familiar handsome design with a New Yorker-esque--or Fischli and Weiss, or Ernie Kovacs--sense of humor, and a touch of Raymond Pettibon's edge: a broomstick-riding witch and a genie traveling by magic carpet share airspace, a battered-looking armored truck is jacked up on three sets of cinderblocks and a fully-suited knight sips soda from a straw through his helmet. Shopsin is an east coast graphic artist, line cook and the daughter of New York food legend Kenny Shopsin, whose restaurant--a long-term West Village mainstay--features a famously over-stuffed menu. Father and daughter recently collaborated on the popular cookbook, Eat Me: the Food and Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin. She is also a regular contributor to The New York Times Book Review and Op-Ed pages, as well as various other national magazines.
