Lunatic, irreverent, zany, hilarious and “it’s way over my head’ are just some of the things that have been said about Unventions. Cléon Daniel has produced a series of drawings challenging the way we look at banal everyday objects and has also invented a collection of bonkers alternative uses for them.
The book, through lampoon, spoof and satire makes us question simple everyday items and see how crazily different things might have turned out had perhaps The Goons applied their collective genius to invention and not the radio sketchshow.
For example 'Pad Lock Nessie':
Or 'Penguin Organiser':
This brilliant little book should be kept on with you at all times, to cheer you up at a moment's notice or even to encourage you too to create your own Unventions. Collecting together a rib-tickling ‘best of’ by one of the uk's up and coming young artists with a growing band of followers these gloriously drawn lo-fi illustrations push absurdity to a whole new level.
