Through striking and humorous figurative drawings, the iconic artist and musician David Byrne depicts daily life in surreal and intriguing ways. His black and white illustrations, created while under quarantine, expand on the dingbat, a typographic ornament used to illuminate or break up blocks of text, to explore the nuances of life under lockdown and evoke the complex, global systems the pandemic cast in bright light. This unique and expressive book reflects on shared experiences and presents history as a story that is continually undergoing revision.
