Book description: "Common Sense is a Hungry Bitch collects an array of collage work, striking and uncanny interventions that challenge what you’re seeing. The warm and weathered quality of the images from mid-century vernacular source material lull the viewer into a certain comfort, the nostalgic tint of Life magazine or a family photo album torn and pasted into jarring contortions of people, animals, and scenery that are swapped amongst themselves, irrevocably mixed-up. Surrounding the collage images are carefully juxtaposed spot colours that enhance this familiar yet uncomfortable tone and bring you deeper into spreads where each image begs a double-take." — Printed Matter, Inc., New York
