Cherubic girls, psychic figures and disturbing archetypes are the body and soul of artist Mark Ryden’s work, the king of cultural kitsch who since the 90’s has drawn global attention. His paintings are among the most recognizable, with big-eyed, nostalgic dressed girls, mythical bunnies and lots of meat. Pinxit is a new limited-edition book by Taschen  featuring highlights from Ryden’s greatest exhibitions and includes collected essays by Yoshitomo Nara, Carlo McCormick and others along with a new essay by culture critic Kristine McKenna. All his paintings and sketches are reproduced with the finest techniques available, while over a dozen of them are foldouts. The super-glossy book is coming out in a boxed collector’s edition of 1000 copies signed by the artist. You can buy it here
