Funny or Die
by Alex Felton
In this book, Felton mines the darker, stranger corners of his day job, the Multnomah County Library, to create subversive comedy in the form of digital collages. Using imagery and text from fine art, pop culture, literature, and journalism, Felton's juxtapositions explore the mechanisms of jokes while revealing the common threads that connect cultural highs and lows.
