Item description for McSweeney's Issue 27 (Mcsweeney's Quarterly Concern) by Dave Eggers, Gregg Schigiel, Lee Loughridge, Amy Hungerford, Mary Loeffelholz, Joe Shuster, Frances F. Berdan & Gerard S. Sloyan...
Plunging straight into the grayish, faintly understood area of the art world that involves oddly drawn objects coupled with uncertainly spelled text, McSweeney's Issue 27 brings together a previously uncategorized cadre of pithy draftsmen, genius doodlers, and fine-artistic cartoonists, and buffets them with articles examining just what it is that these people are doing and why the world should know about it. Featuring work from David Shrigley, Tucker Nichols, and many others — including an unreleased Art Spiegelman sketchbook — the latest quarterly from McSweeney's presents a new kind of contemporary art.
