From turn-of-the-century novelties and Depression-era distraction, through wartime comfort, to Hello Kitty and Jeff Koons, cuteness has thrived in the fertile soil of modern media and pop culture. What is it about fluffy bunnies with bows, baby ducks splashing in puddles, kittens snuggled in baskets and little lambs on their way to school? "Happy Kitty Bunny Pony" celebrates the 'cult of the cute' in all its camp, kitsch, ironic glory. With more than 200 images from the print and advertising archives of the Charles S. Anderson Design Company, this collection is an amazingly rich testament to our fascination with cute things. The hilarious commentary by "Mystery Science Theater 3000" host Mike Nelson, spiked with fun and curious facts, bits of sarcasm, and dry and not-so dry wit, is as surprising and bizarre as the images themselves. So go ahead and join the fun - everyone from art students to your grandma is already shouting the cult-of-the-cute battle cry: 'Happy Kitty Bunny Pony!'Biografía del autor:
