BOMBLOG Reviews Alex Forman’s Tall, Slim & Erect

At BOMBLOG, Andrea Quaid reviews Alex Forman’s new book Tall, Slim & Erect: Portraits of the Presidents:

Alex Forman’s Tall, Slim & Erect: Portraits of the Presidents (Les Figues Press 2012) begins with an epigraph from Louis Marx, known as The Toy King: “There are only old toys with new twists.” As a statement about the certainty of return and the generative play of commentary and revision, the quote cues an aesthetically smart and intellectually witty book that uses objects and documents of the past to render its portrayals.
