MIRTH IN THE MORNING...AND ALL LAUGHTERNOON:
1,001 Cartoons to Fill the Day with Delight
• A collection of 1,001 newspaper-style comics on every topic imaginable
• 30 years’ worth of single-panel cartoons, with and without captions
• Hilarious images and clever zingers will keep you smiling
This treasure trove of humor from one of the country’s most prolific cartoonists is filled with comics
that range in subject matter from fishing and golf to medicine and business, dogs and cats to children
and family. Selected from the fruits of a 30-year freelance career, the cartoons are done in pastels, gray
wash, and digital color, with most of the pieces designed in a campy, reader-friendly, black and white
line-drawn style. These single-panel illustrations take a peek at our everyday lives—turned on their
heads—and are served with witty quips, clever one-liners, and puns, or are occasionally presented as
wordless frames conveying a delightfully slapstick scenario. Fans of the funny papers and readers looking
for a quick and easy laugh will relate to the ingeniously illustrated, often very silly, situations, which
capture our foibles, fears, and just a few flaws, on every page.

THE WORLD OF URBAN DECAY 2
Martin ten Bouwhuijs
• Abandoned churches, hospitals, morgues, farms, monasteries, and castles across Eastern and
Western Europe
• 150 images with descriptions of the adventures experienced when the places were visited
• Take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints
When exploring the remains of forgotten buildings and abandoned lots in Eastern andWestern Europe,
a sign with “Trespassers will be prosecuted!” is usually what you’ll find outside. Imposing, seemingly
lifeless structures—some abandoned formore than 25 years—including churches, mortuaries, factories,
hospitals, swimming pools, andmore, become reanimated in this series of arresting, sensually provocative
images. Onmany buildings, unaffected by human interference for years, only beautiful, natural decay can
be seen: moss growing on mattresses and cars, wallpaper peeling, and complete floors—beds, pianos,
and all—having completely collapsed.These images are the results of daring photographic escapades, out
of which is born a new appreciation for the beautiful architecture and the awe-inspiring grandeur of far-
gone days. Surreal angles, frombottoms of stairwells in vacant sanatoria, and in an unsupervised Swedish
junkyard, bring the photography to life and keep the interest in this urban expedition at a thrilling peak.
Martin ten Bouwhuijs
was born in 1965 in Enschede, the Netherlands. He started his hobby,
urban exploring, after he saw a report about the subject on TV, and he continues to look for abandoned
buildings, hoping for beautiful pictures.
