Highly Commended Most Promising New Talent 2012: A Zeal Of Zebras by Woop Studios
A poetic collection of creatures, playfully presented in words and pictures
Forget flocks and herds: they’re so last year. When talking about a large mass of creatures, isn’t a galaxy of starfish, a quiver of cobras, or an exaltation of peacocks so much more poetic? This sumptuously designed tome features an imaginative host of whimsical descriptive terms in rich, evocative language. Coming from the artistic talents of Woop Studios, the pictures aren’t bad, either. With a cool, retro charm that pays homage to the mid-century modernist aesthetic, the images have strong graphic appeal that perfectly complements the playful tones.
