"Subtract" by Tyson McAdoo

A while back, I backed a kickstarter by Tyson McAdoo for him to be able to publish a new book titled "Subtract". The completion of the project was wonderfully on time, and all the books were promptly mailed out after. Shipping was quick and the packaging of the books were wonderful.

This is it.
The beautiful creation that is "Subtract".

I can tell that the utmost care was paid to every detail in this book. I mean look at the wonderful abstract gloss to the book, and even how unique the barcode was made to look so it didn't feel out of place. I love the simplicity of the book's cover design. 

The inside of the book was no different. I loved the print quality, and the entire feel of the book.
Also, I have this pet peeve where when the picture in a book doesn't take up the entire page yet one of its side touches the edge of the page... I hate that because it looks very unaesthetic. This book didn't have that irksome problem. The pictures were either full page pictures, or they had a border around them.

Here's a full page drawing. You can see the brushstrokes and the colours are lovely.

Then there was a section for Tyson McAdoo's drawings.

The pages were ever-so-slightly shorter than the rest of the pages, and I felt that was a nice addition to the book too.

  I'm not affiliated with Tyson in any ways. I do not gain anything from you purchasing the book. Nor was I given the book for free. I just really genuinely loved the book that much, and wished that other art books were created with as much attention to detail as "Subtract" was given.

  With that, here's a video of me flipping through the book:
