Including this great book by one of my favourite artists, Slinkachu.
I bought Global Model Village: The International Street Art of Slinkachu here after wanting another of his books ever since I got the last one!
Global Model Village: The International Street Art of Slinkachu, front cover, Boxtree 2012.
As always, Slinkachu uses the world around him to place tiny model people into human-sized situations. The book, cleverly, shows close ups of the set-ups, as you can see below, but also shows a wider angled shot, showing the background and settings and where, often you have to really squint to see the models.

Ground Zero: Slinkachu
I love Slinkachu's work, not just for the cute quirkiness and huge skill involved but for the situations he portrays; things that every day people go through, problems that the world and its societies face and in this book, Slinkachu goes around the world, giving a more diverse range of worldly problems with interesting political and natural backdrops.
It seems the little people know how we feel!
