Synopses & Reviews
Join Howard Moon, Vince Noir, Naboo, Bollo, Bob Fossil, Old Gregg, the Moon, and all your other favorite characters on a unique and graphically stunning journey into the world of The Mighty Boosh
Incredibly funny, visually dynamic, surreal, musical, and wildly creative, The Mighty Boosh is unlike anything else on television, and this beautifully illustrated humor book promises to be the same. Boosh art director Dave Brownaka Bollo the gorillahas designed countless graphics based on Boosh jokes, including a poster for the Howard vs. kangaroo boxing match and a vintage Penguin-looking book cover for Howard Moon's Trumpet Full of Memories. Other artists have illustrated such essentials of the Boosh-iverse as the a cappella songs known as crimps and the eclectic hairstyles. Every Boosh fan will love Old Gregg's Baileys-fueled watercolors, Vince's Excuses for Being Late, and Bob Fossil's Guide to Dance.
"Something quite special . . . peculiar and magical. . . . Stories, comic strips, and new insights into the Boosh world make this a must-have for any devotee." —Time Out
"Occasionally, a comedy show enters the public consciousness so far as to become a 'cultural resource.' It happened in the 1960s and 70s with Monty Python, and now with The Mighty Boosh . . . The Mighty Book of Boosh is beautifully produced, with a graphic design sensibility, and, above all, funny . . . Photos, drawings, illustrated 'crimps' and comic strips nod towards TV episodes but spiral off into graphic delirium . . . The joy of a joke is in the telling, and the examples collected here are delivered with an impeccable level of stupidity." —Eye: The International Review of Graphic Design
"Every page is something vivid, wacky, and different than the prior page. I absolutely loved it." —boingboing.net
"Goes beyond a thorough reference guide . . . its fresh, hilarious, and brilliantly put together material will make any Boosh fan love the show all the more." —booshusa.com
"If Salvador Dali, Dr. Seuss, and Douglas Adams had ever cracked open a bottle of absinthe and written a sitcom, it might have turned out like this." —Radio Times
"If there had ever been a collaboration between David Bowie, Anthony Burgess, and Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are, it might have turned out something like this." —Observer
