Book Review: Gorillaz Almanac

Gorillaz Almanac - 01

Gorillaz Almanac is just a fun excuse to come up with a Gorillaz artbook.

According to the editor Beatrix Blotter, this almanac is “inspired by the British tradition of comic and pop music annuals, which come out every year and feature cartoon characters, celebrities and pop stars getting up to all kinds of mischiefs”. That’s a pretty accurate description of this book. This book is something like Mad Magazine where anything goes. There are comics, movie scripts, fake classified ads, essay from a roadie, cut out face masks, crossword puzzles, plenty of collage, scrapbook pages, photos of fan cosplayers, and more.

The art from J.C. Hewlett looks as good and timeless as ever. Half the book is a gallery of Gorillaz artworks from the last 20 years.

This book is not a full retrospect on the story of Gorillaz. It does not cover the very obviously rich history of Gorillaz, their albums and fans. That definitely deserves a book on its own.

This is a fantastic book for all Gorillaz fans. At the official retail price is US $24.99, it’s really worth the money.
