One of Indie Rock's Best Poster Artists (Pitchfork)“Ryan has been making strange little creatures since the mid-’90s, most often for bands in the Chicago area looking to promote concerts with something splashier than a Xeroxed flyer. His work is unmistakable: Whether it’s a bunch of animals cozied up under the covers or a smashed-up satellite advertising a Hum reunion, there’s nothing else exactly like it (and nothing nearly as charming)."--The A.V. Club, staff pick«Whether his subjects are whales, bears, mastodons, astronauts, dinosaurs, or his dilapidated garage, they’re rendered in warm colors, bold lines, and an instantly recognizable, beguiling and cartoonish style. If you lack sufficient wall space for another dozen of Ryan’s posters, get this.”--The Big Takeover“The third collection of Ryan’s screen-printed work, covering 2009–2015, includes more than 50 band posters (Andrew Bird, Sonic Youth, St. Vincent) plus several festival posters.”-— Publishers Weekly“A new select collection of recent poster and commercial work of artist Jay Ryan — someone whose crazy skills really do put the GREAT in ‘greatest hits.’ It's rock poster art, alt-movie poster art and more.”--Atomic Books Comic Preview, Largehearted Boy“[The book] features Ryan’s colorful and distinctive artwork, most of which are concert posters, including those for shows by queer artists including Bob Mould and St. Vincent.”-— Living Out LI“An exceptional guide to not just Jay Ryan's art, but to the process involved in making superior screenprints.”--Donovan's Literary Services, a Prime PickThis third collection of Ryan's “greatest hits” features prints made between 2009 and 2015, including posters for bands such as Andrew Bird, Shellac, My Morning Jacket, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Hum, St. Vincent, and others, as well as posters featuring Lil BUB, Cards Against Humanity, various bicycle races, film screenings, and pictures of sloths, walruses, and other mammals in states of troubled sleep.

“Having grown up on the streets of South Jamaica, Queens, Fox wrote this first novel in 2013 while incarcerated at the Orleans Correctional Facility. After moving to rap music as a pal of artist 50 Cent, in 2014 the author unfortunately was gunned down by a killer in a black ski mask. Here, Teen DeMarco Jones finds himself in a correctional center to do a bid for 18 months. By luck he breaks out and returns to the streets and starts dealing.”--Library Journal“[A] paean to hip-hop life in Queens . . .

Mazaradi Fox knew how to play the game better than most, and his life and experience shine through every page of this tough and unsentimental book. An instant classic of NYC thug life.”--Prodigy of Mobb DeepMazaradi Fox wrote this novel in 2013 during his incarceration at the Orleans Correctional Facility. The Game Don't Change opens when DeMarco Jones escapes from a juvenile detention center. Successfully evading the law, DeMarco builds his reputation on the streets of Queens as a fearless and charismatic drug hustler. Though he is only sixteen, women of all ages can't get enough of him. He quickly finds, however, that he must battle ferociously to maintain his new kingpin status.

One of Library Journal's Best Books of 2015“Holmes…is a noted pioneering street lit author. His smooth-flowing narrative mixes crime, sex, and sassy street language, giving his protagonists a true life-in-the-streets feel. This will more than satisfy serious readers of urban fiction.”--Library Journal (Starred Review, Pick of the Month)“I read this book in one sitting….It's a great way to escape and be entertained for a few hours.”--Baltimore Times“Pure entertainment.”--Hawt ReadsDixyn Greene has it all.

Strapped for cash, her good intentions lead to bad decisions.Enter Brian Winters, B-Dub, and her one saving grace, or so she initially believes. In Dixyn's time of need, B-Dub turns out to be no more than an opportunist with his own agenda. Dixyn becomes indebted to him and is forced to do his bidding in order to survive. With B-Dub on her back, she submerges herself into the murky waters of street life and is soon entangled in a web of lust, betrayal, blackmail, and deceit. She ultimately discovers that there are no rules in the game. In the game, loyalty is limited. Trust will get you hurt and love will get you killed.Infamous Books, curated by Albert “Prodigy” Johnson from the legendary hip-hop group Mobb Deep, is a revolutionary partnership that pairs the Infamous Records brand with Brooklyn-based independent publisher Akashic Books.

One of the Huffington Post's Best Art Books of 2015“[Peaches] has teamed up with her longtime tour photographer Holger Talinski to look back at a brazen career that has captured the attention of outsider artists and massive pop stars alike, ranging from Michael Stipe to PJ Harvey to Iggy Pop…Along with Holger's uncompromising, often raw imagery, the book includes stories from artists who have championed Peaches's work over the years.”--New York Times T Magazine“It takes a lot of grueling work to pull off what Peaches does so subversively night after night on tour and in theater productions. That's the takeaway from this revealing (and NSFW) photo book on the electro-pop provocateur, as seen through the lens of photographer Talinski and featuring essays by Michael Stipe, Yoko Ono, and Ellen Page.”--Boston Globe“Electronic musician and performance artist Peaches has made a career out of pushing boundaries, and her new book is equally transgressive. Photographer Holger Talinski captures the artist onstage and off in the outrageous costumes that have been a performance signature for her, and in quieter moments away from the strobe lights.”--San Francisco Chronicle«One flip through the glossy new monograph What Else Is In the Teaches of Peaches is all it takes to get absorbed into the post-punk wonderland of pop culture icon Peaches.”--W Magazine“Peaches is an attitude and a sensibility….She's iconic, and her iconography is important.”--The Globe and MailOne of Loud and Quiet Magazine's Best Books of 2015“The bare-all book shows Peaches on and off stage, focusing on her efforts to shatter gender stereotypes, promote sex positivity, and push the boundaries of art and performance.”--Vice Magazine, The Creators Project«What Else Is in the Teaches of Peaches, a new book of photography, attempts to capture more: Peaches onstage, backstage, in her 30-boob breastplate, on the crapper, on a cross, passed out, convalescing, performing for Yoko Ono, curled up with family, recording with Iggy Pop. It's a groupie's delight.”--SF Weekly«For Peaches fans, the collection offers glimpses into both the public and private life of the artist who put feminist electroclash on the map. Peaches led the way, not only for other underground electronic acts like Le Tigre, Ladytron, and Chicks on Speed, but also artists that went on to major mainstream success. Would M.I.A. exist without Peaches? Lady Gaga? In her current iteration, Miley Cyrus?…In the end, [What Else Is in the Teaches of Peaches] is a reminder that Peaches, the artist and the musician…forged a vibrant, genre-bending career that continues to throb with spirit, transgression, energy, and ambition.”--KQED Arts«Perhaps what hits you most of all, maybe more than the striking costumes and occasional nudity, is how much fun Peaches' life appears to be. Less than halfway into the book, you start to trust the Peaches/Talinski collaborative union, and you somehow come to realise that it's all authentic, magic and reality. There's none of the staginess that you sometimes see in photo books of pop stars, particularly those who are led around by their egos.”--PopMattersThis volume presents a mesmerizing collection of Holger Talinski's evocative and sometimes erotic photos of transgressive musical icon Peaches, on and off stage, with accompanying text by Peaches, Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), Yoko Ono, and the actress Ellen Page, best known for her lead role in the film Juno, which garnered her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
QUESTIONS FOR CBSD: what extent should we be selling this book as a children's book vs. as a general adult book? It has great appeal to both markets. It's definitely primarly an ADULT book, but I'm wondering if there's any crossover.2. Please check BISAC & shelving categories.3. The format is listed as a “Picture Book”.

Named one of the 20 Greatest New Father's Day Gifts by!“No matter what the country or the language, parents all over the world--loving, frustrated, exhausted parents--know what Adam Mansbach means. Since 2011, his comically obscene picture book has sold more than 1.5 million copies in dozens of languages from Afrikaans to Japanese to Nynorsk. And later this year, his little book will venture into new territory with a Jamaican patois translation: 'Go de R–s to Sleep.'"--The Washington Post/Style Blog“This version of Adam Mansbach's profane, affectionate, and radically honest book will remind whole new audiences about the absurdities of parenting. Just don't read it to the kids.”, The 20 Greatest New Father's Day GiftsPraise for Go the Fuck to Sleep:“A new Bible for weary parents.”--New York Times“Incredibly appealing.”--NPR“A parenting zeitgeist…A phenomenon that has stunned the publishing world and may just redefine the modern ‘parenting’ market.”--Washington Post“Delightfully obscene.”--Newsweek“Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this deranged book.”--New YorkerThe best-selling Go the F*** to Sleep has been translated into over thirty languages worldwide. Now it is finally translated for Jamaican and other Caribbean parents of the world. Given how many West Indians live in the US and Canada, the market for this book should be broad, but focused mainly on areas with a large Caribbean community.Go de Rass to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award–winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar--and unspoken--tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity.With illustrations by Ricardo Cortés, Go de Rass to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wettingly funny--a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.

“A gritty, fast-paced tale of revenge…Tight, terse prose harkens back to pulp fiction of the 1950s…The work is a breath of fresh air from lengthy, trying-too-hard-to-shock street lit and is an excellent choice for all metropolitan collections.”--Library Journal (starred review, Pick of the Month)“The urban setting is unnamed but familiar in this brief, bloody tale of wasted lives lived short and hard.”--Publishers Weekly«Simultaneously a fast-paced crime drama and an engrossing, unsentimental moral tale, H.N.I.C. peers into the dark heart that underpins the codes of loyalty and friendship, betrayal and vengeance.”--Brooklyn Daily Eagle«In a genre that too often places incorrect ebonics in the mouths of black characters and fails to cross the empathy gap to get into their heads, Savile and Prodigy arrive at a seamless voice that is a refreshing take on crime fiction tropes…if tone and texture are what you're looking for in your hardcore literature…H.N.I.C. delivers the goods.”--Okayplayer«H.N.I.C. is written by Prodigy himself and shows the extent to which good rappers can make good storytellers.”--Brooklyn Based«Ultimately, H.N.I.C. deals on all the right levels and is completely satisfying.”--Blackout Book Review«If you don't have this novella in your library collection already, please be on the lookout for this 2013 release, H.N.I.C., penned by Hip Hop artist Prodigy of the group, Mobb Deep.”«The strength of this novella, in addition to its straightforward prose and rapid pacing, rests on the universal theme at its center: loyalty. Loyalty and the bullshit our friends put us through…Like any good work of crime, H.N.I.C. is grounded in such common experiences and, like any good work of crime, it speaks to all of us, despite the fact that very few of us can bypass an alarm system through some computer trickery.”--Nerds of a Feather, Flock Together“It tells the…urban tale of deceit, greed and questioned loyalty with just enough drama to keep you turning the pages.”--Literary Jewels“A brutal and quick read…custom-made for the big screen.”--Charles Tatum's Review ArchiveProdigy, from the legendary hip-hop group Mobb Deep, launches Akashic's new Infamous Books imprint with a story of loyalty, vengeance, and greed.Pappy tries to break out of the game before the head of his crew, Black, gets them all killed.

Yet he still agrees to do the job because Black isn't the only one who can't be trusted.Further developing the stark realism and uncompromising streetwise narratives of his lyrics, H.N.I.C. cements Prodigy's position as one of the foremost chroniclers of contemporary urban life.
