I'm So Happy: A Picture-Perfect Adventure Story
by Marvin Heiferman
Publisher's Description
This book of family photographs from the 1950s through the present takes familiar images from our media environment and juxtaposes them so that they become jarring and sometimes disturbing. The authors have placed lines of text next to each image which help to decontextualize the pictures. Intended as the first in a larger series, I'm So Happy goes a long way toward fulfilling critic Lucy Lippard's idea of artists' books mass produced for the supermarket. "Marvin Heiferman and Carole Kismaric's collaborations extend traditional book formats by using pictures to decode the contradictions in our frantic visual world."--the publisher.
