Happy! Kitty! Bunny! Pony!

Like Gwen Stefani's "Love Angel Music Baby" album, the "Happy Kitty Bunny Pony" series is also meant for those with a "Fatal Attraction to Cuteness". The cover art reminds me of 1930's wallpaper, but has some modern design inside too. The book follows all things cute from the 1930's to present day, with a running commentary. Cute imagery + commentary—hmm, sounds kinda familiar! [shifty eyes]

There's also a spiral bound journal and a plastic purse for note cards & envelopes. Both include stickers to close the letters. Redonk!

The text in these books was authored by Mike Nelson from Mystery Science Theater 3000. Cool!

Tyger, that's not cute! One day, when the snake is hungry enough, he will eat the little, fluffy hamster!

I love the pictures in this series but hate the text. Sorry but "cute" actually does makes me happy, and when it's paired with ugly, sarcastic, supposedly "humorous" text, it's like- something- really ugly & cold. Yuk. I don't even want to make my mind go there. :-P

I went to an AIGA design conference a couple years ago and met one of the guys who put those books together. He was telling us how something like 80% of all greeting cards have either a puppy, kitten, or baby on the front, so they wanted to see what kind of response a book with only cute things would have. The result? Their best sellers!

LOL Spot -- you're absolutely right! Check the link, I think she's the one on the right...

I have to say, I do not care for the disembodied-head element of this. Although I do recognise the bunny from somewhere.

A semi-ironic approach to cute does not negate affection for the cute, people. You're taking this too seriously.

This book is hilarious. It's not cute in the sense that it'll make you puke rainbows, but more like...creepy cute? If you're interested in graphic design, it's cool to look at.

Robyn

Robyn: "Puke Rainbows"! Can I steal that!? Fantastic.

Squish: you're right, the Sanrio stuff is cute too. More subtle, but still cute.

inanimate objects are NOT cute. small, furry animals ARE.

Jessica
 |  Jan 23, 2006 at 12:04 PM

Yeah, hello? We come here for pictures of real animals.

Anna

A friend suggested that a picture I just posted on my blog be sent over here. If so, what is the "protocol"? I think my baby girl is tooooo precious.

I think it's weird when people get offended by irony.

If it's not your sense of humor, that's fine--but why get all offended about it?

The images are great in these books (except the re-worked Keanesque stuff in the gothic book---that's just stupid), but the writing is stunningly unfunny and if you go to the popink website they want you to click a permission screen to look at a bunch of art that they didn't create!!!! It's bizarre.
