The This Is Not A Toy book, a spectacular survey of contemporary art and collectible design inspired by the Design Exchange exhibition, guest curated by Pharrell Williams with John Wee Tom and Sara Nickleson. This substantial publication is an even deeper consideration of some of the exhibition's themes, including an exploration of the allure and mystique of the art toy; the accessibility of art; designer toys as portals to an artist's oeuvre and the wider art world; and urban vinyl's unique relevance and significance in contemporary culture.Designed by Blok Design, this limited edition of just 1000 books includes thoughtful essays from several contributors including artist, thinker and pop-culture guru Douglas Coupland, Toronto Star art critic Murray Whyte and Magic Pony's Kristin Weckworth, along with artist biographies and over 200 selected works with complete descriptions from KAWS, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, FriendsWithYou, Frank Kozik, Coarse, Huck Gee and many more - plus there's an exclusive interview with Pharrell Williams. Bring the internationally praised exhibition home with this vibrant catalogue.
