Item description for Dot Dot Dash: Designer Toys, Action Figures And Character Art by Robert Klanten...

Dot Dot Dash! is brought to you by the editors of Pictoplasma and Pictoplasma 2. Expanding on the widely popular subject of contemporary character design, this definitive volume showcases an up-to-date survey of the personalities and characters that have entered the third dimension.

Vinyl figures, plush dolls, designer toys and action figures can be seen as a new movement in contemporary design, art and popular culture. Interest in these three-dimensional toys have surged, drawing on pop culture, graffiti and visual art. The new-generation-characters appear cute, cuddly and innocuous at first, but are often elicit, subversive and politically incorrect. Not intended for child's play, they are highly esteemed by teens and adults alike. Each is a work of art, often created by world-famous artists and many of them are produced independently in limited editions and become highly sought after collectibles.

A recent trend of character applications aspiring from inherent crossovers of the character and art worlds is also taking form in sculptures and objects, creating a new art market where artists are progressively moving beyond the boundaries of the gallery and extending their work to a disparate audience.

This voluptuous volume exhibits the expansive scope of designs and objects in the ultimate compilation of contemporary character design.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dot Dot Dash: Designer Toys, Action Figures And Character Art?

Wonderful.  Aug 24, 2007
The book is comprehensive and inspiring to me as an artist.
Not, however, suitable for children under age 13, as
some of the toys are quite gruesome, and some are sexually oriented.
Yes!  Mar 26, 2007
This book it's what I expected and more, great compilation of pictures, hundred of toys, very visual and complet.
Great Coffee Table Book  Mar 9, 2007
I'm telling you this really gets the conversation started. Anyone who has never seen these designer toys really get a kick out of it. This was a great purchase to hold off my addiction from buying all of the figures. The one complaint is they could have off-centered the really well done photographs so they don't get cut off in the binding. Very pleased with the amount of artwork in there. Definitely would recommend it to anyone, a collector or any other person who appreciates a fun piece of art.
Great book!  Nov 14, 2006
I just got a copy of this book in the mail today. I love it. I have been looking thru it and showing it to my friends(I have three toys in this book)since I opened it this morning. I only have one issue with it and that's that one of my toys is listed as being an 8" Dunny when it's actually a 3"...Not a big deal.
If you like designer toys even a little you will dig this book. If you are a toy customizer or toy designer, I hope you find this book as inspiring as I do.
This book even has an entire section devoted to plush toys! I've looked thru several designer toy books and I've never seen one as complete as this one.

Visual eye candy yum!
