People People by Jonathan DeDecker, $15. Published by Lucky Risograph. Digest size, 34 pages, risograph
DeDecker makes images where every choice counts towards the whole, resulting in a lexicon of visuals that is charged with thrills. But DeDecker's vocabulary doesn't skew towards obvious crowd pleasers. His work makes perfect, subtle modifications to recognizable figures, and adds an ample dose of aggressive improvisation, resulting in a potent mix of shapes, ideas and enjoyment. This art zine, beautifully printed, gets at the heart of what he does.
