Jim Mahfood releases limited-edition “Pop Up Funk”

pop up funk - coverJim Mahfood, aka Food One, aka one of our favorite artists ever, has released some dope shit over the course of his career. Ask for Janice, his ‘zine about the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique, might be one of the coolest things we own. The man does amazingly with everything he touches, such as turning his online strip Los Angeles Ink Stains from JPGs to a massive book that lets you see everything in tight detail.

So, it’s unsurprising that we collectively lost our minds here at the Nuthouse when we discovered he was releasing a pop-pup book. It’s been pretty cool watching Pop Up Funk take shape via Food’s Instagram, because it’s pretty obvious that this is a handmade labor of love. Rosston Meyer has done an amazing job of converting the artwork into these 3D pop up images, and I really wish I had the money to purchase one.

However, I don’t, but I’d like to think that more people will do fantastic work like this if it’s supported, so pop over to the Pop Up Funk store to get either the limited-edition “regular” version, of which only 100 will be made, or snag the “AP edition,” which includes the Pervert Train collector’s button, an original piece of art, an 18″ x 24″ signed & numbered print of the back cover image, and it’s bound in silver instead of turquoise. There are only 10.
