The European Union is one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken. Why is Europe so important, and at the same time, why is no one really interested in it? Dutch writer Mark Schalekamp set... More > out to find answers to these and other questions and travelled to all 28 of the European Union’s member states to interview eight people in each capital city: a doctor, a police officer, a hairdresser, an entrepreneur, an artist, an immigrant, a sex worker and a local celebrity.

Francis Nally’s A Manifesto About Stalking Patrick Hyland is a collection of essays from his cult classic website, “Asian Aryanism.com” It has nothing to do with national socialism,... More > but rather flips the ideology of the alt-right on it’s head by introducing a conceptual “bicultural” world after the fall of globalism and the beginning of communal “ethnonationalism.” He argues that Eurasian people and interracial couples must secure a destiny and a culture based around identity politics. Nally is a pioneer in the avant-garde blogging movement known as the “alt-left.” His writing has been compared to Jim Goad, Peter Sotos, and Katherine Dunn. A work of stunning originality, this book is a manual for all advocates of eurasian futurism and proper miscegenation. Full of humor, wit, insight, and theory-fiction. This book is for people who “get it.” www.pilleater.com< Less

Conceptual art can be bountiful, spare, even beautiful. With an economy of presentation, Márton Koppány’s work uniquely captures, invents, and refashions installations on the page... More > from unexpected sources. His works run the gamut of humor, politics, and philosophy. Each piece offers a genuine gift of perception. With signature purity, works such as “Asemic Volcano”, showcase the potency of word-free realities. “Emptiness” is vibrant with lui-meme realization. “One Moment in Three Sections” depicts a tiny triumph. “Old Question” and “Addendum” prepare the viewer for “Still Life No. 2,” a final reminder of the inherent interconnectedness among all things. The recombinant majesty of Koppány’s genius raises the bar for what is possible in the infinitely expanding universe of visual poetry. —Sheila E. Murphy< Less

Paperback: $25.20
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a poetry/art book that combines social, sexual and horror themes with some amazing artwork. One of the more interesting pieces, "God's Desktop", is a triptych (three-piece) of God's... More > daily computer tasks, including IMs with Satan, Jesus and the Pope. It is a riot of humor, yet with a biting realism that punches home the message. Some of the works are centered around Animal Rights, human injustice and Native American themes, while others are beautifully romantic and personal.

If you like sweet and sour, dark and light, heavy melodies and pain with pleasure, you will love this book.< Less
