Yoshitomo Nara: Nothing Ever Happens

Yoshitomo Nara: Nothing Ever Happens
Library Shelf Location 18.NARA
Publication Date Nov 2003

Featuring essays and short fiction by a range of contemporary writers, punk musicians and cultural critics, as well as writings by Yoshitomo Nara himself, the cult artist's book Nothing Ever Happens--available through D.A.P. for the first time--examines both Nara's work and the subject it addresses. Readers are invited into a fantastic world where emotions are not expected to be filtered, make-believe is not equated with lunacy and the world is both fantastic and terrifying. One of the most important and best-loved Japanese contemporary artists, Nara distinctively transcends a national style to offer a universal or touching psychological narrative of childhood. In this beautifully designed book with cool paper changes and pitch-perfect image selection, Nara's work is paired with writings by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney, writer Dave Eggers, Deborah Harry (Blondie), Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock) and others of equally interesting stature.
