Author(s): MURPHY JOHN
John Murphys "Stupid Creatures" helped to usher in the first wave of the plush toy revolution that continues to enjoy popularity today. In "Revelations & the Stupid Creatures", Murphy pairs his distinct fabric sculptures with the "Book of Revelations", one of the Bibles most descriptive and interpreted sections. A multi-headed dragon, beasts that resemble a lion, calf, man and an eagle, seven angels and more get commissioned treatments from Murphy that are destined to be remembered as vividly as William Blakes prints that respond to the same story. Illustrator Liana Finck compliments the "Creatures" with her expressive take on the settings where these epic episodes take place, creating an affordable gift book. "Revelations & the Stupid Creatures" marks the first in what will be an ongoing series of artists, working in all mediums, responding to the "Book of Revelations".
