STRANGEco and MTV Books have just announced their new Toys 2008 Wall Calendar featuring the amazing toy photography of Brian McCarty. We are honored that the cover photo they chose for the calendar is the wonderful Laughing Squid photo that Brian and his McCarty Photoworks created for us. It’s the image that we used for last year’s Laughing Squid Decade 2 event poster.
STRANGEco has joined forces with MTV Books again to bring this cool new 2008 wall calendar, featuring the great photography of Brian McCarty and McCarty Photoworks! For those that don’t know Brian’s work, he is the Annie Leibowitz of Designer Toys, capturing a variety of the past decades greatest designs in environments that suit them perfectly. McCarty’s photos include figures by Andrew Bell, Genshi: Toy, Jeremy Fish, Necessaries Toy Foundation, Muttpop, Meredith Dittmar, tokidoki, Sam Flores, Luke Chueh, Monkey vs. Robot and Rocket World. PLUS – that great underwater shot, taken for SF art and culture blog Laughing Squid.
The calendar is now available for pre-order, shipping late November.
