The Big Book of Subversive Stickers
Paperback ISBN: 1934708089
Advertising is Pollution!, or so says a popular bumper sticker. So what does that make stickers? SMASH PROCRASTINATION MUTE THE COMMERCIALS UNCLICKABLE MIX BUSINESS WITH PLEASURE NOBODY OWNS YOU COLLABORATE I REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM WE LEARN BY TEACHING DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ DEBUG THE VOTE Srini Kumar, the unstoppable force behind StickerNation.com and Unamerican.com, returns with a second blockbuster collection of over four hundred all-new stickers. In 1994, while working the swing shift at the Kinko’s in Menlo Park, California, Srini Kumar made a name for himself as one of the most popular sticker artists in the world. People everywhere have cracked up hysterically at the witty wonder of his one-man rebellion. His first “Big Book of Subversive Stickers” was an immediate hit and has sold out after a third and final printing, making it an in-demand collector’s item. This all-new second volume of stickers once again makes these cult favorite slogans available to the general public in a collectible format. Use them, save them, give them away—they’re so cheap you can buy multiple copies of the book and still be spending less than buying just a few stickers on their own. Srini Kumar holds a degree in sociology from Stanford University and an MBA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the owner of the popular websites Unamerican.com and StickerNation.com. He lives in Los Angeles and is the founder of Metanotes.
