Nog A Dod is a landmark in Canadian Oddball Art Publishing, and documents nearly a decade of work by a loosely-affiliated group of primarily Vancouver artists who draw with and about each other. Like their contemporaries and friends in the Royal Art Lodge, they work on each other’s drawings, create small run books and ephemera, and collaborate on numerous projects. Nog A Dod is the first book to document this vibrant scene, and should be of interest to anyone who has been seduced by Marcel Dzama and Paper Rad. Editor and designer Marc Bell has gone to great lengths to secure quality reproductions of the original bookworks, in many cases of far superior quality than the original photocopied versions.
The book documents hundreds of unique mini-books by artists including Bell, Peter Thompson, Jason McLean, Amy Lockhart, Owen Plummer, Tommy Lacroix, S.P. Ehman, Scott Evans, Julie Voyce and Mark Connery.
