A follow-up to the his first book on vinyl collectibles, I am Plastic, Too by Kidrobot founder Paul Budnitz is a fine way to present the work of creators from around the world. It is so beautifully laid out (no blind boxes here!) that it could create dangerous cravings for vinyl. In addition to coverage of work by artists featured in the first volume, this tome also highlights the skills of talent such as MoCo favorites Amanda Visell, , eBoy, , Kathie Olivas, and Tara McPherson. It is nice to see that artists from Japan and Chian have been included, too, along with several interviews and images of hard-to-come by pieces. Definite eye candy for any vinyl fans.
