It's the foot! The sequel to Tamara Shopsin’s eclectic gem, C’est le Pied! (2007), C’est le Pied II is similarly filled with whimsical line drawings and deadpan conundrums that play on everyday mishaps. Fortynine elegant new doodles combine Shopsin’s familiar handsome design with a New Yorker-esque—or Fischli and Weiss, or Ernie Kovacs—sense of humor, and a touch of Raymond Pettibon’s edge: a broomstick-riding witch and a genie traveling by magic carpet share airspace, a battered-looking armored truck is jacked up on three sets of cinderblocks, a fully-suited knight sips soda from a straw through his helmet...
