worrying and the book a masterpiece of its type." Art Monthly
I spent 5 years collecting and researching Noggins, amassing a small
army of wooden Viking warriors. With an artists eye for detail and the
passion of an obsessed collector, this unique book provides a fascinating
look at Noggins and their close relatives.
The book was printed on digital stencilprinters the modern day descendents
of Roneo/Gestetner duplicators at Knust, Netherlands, this labour-
intensive printing method gives a unique rustic print quality.
Stencilprinters aren't designed for colour printing - full colour printing
pushes their capabilities to the extreme
Noggins are handmade Viking figures with wooden bodies and furry
beards - they are both warlike and cute - fluffy but ready for a fight.
They originated as Scandinavian tourist souvenirs and a thousand
years after the original Vikings, Noggins set out from Scandinavia,
invading peoples homes and settling on knick-knack shelves
round the world! NOGGINS+ has 22 pages of full colour Viking figures,
many duotone images, Anatomy of a Noggin diagram
plus informative & amusing text and comments on individual figures.
44 pgs, softback. perfectbound, 18 x 27 cm.
