Our 10th Menu!
From What Rhymes with Trick Dog - About the book
At Trick Dog we change our cocktail menu every six months. We like menus to look like just about anything other than a cocktail menu. They have looked like paint swatch books; they have looked like dog calendars; they have looked like Chinese restaurant menus. For this, our tenth, we present to you What Rhymes with Trick Dog? — a children's book.
The poems in this book are by Daniel Levin Becker.
The drawings are by @ferrisplock & @kellytunstall.
The printing is by @solsticepress.
The kind folks at McSweeney's (@mcswys) helped along the way too.
We hope you like the book. We do.
— Trick Dog

About the illustrators: Ferris Plock and Kelly Tunstall are San Francisco-based artists who thrive in fog and angst, and are the proud parents of two redheaded sons, Brixton and Aengus. They have persisted in their chosen field for over a decade showing and working in collaboration. The pair has shown nationally and internationally, and took up residence at the deYoung museum. With roots in San Francisco's skateboard lowbrow humorist movements of the early aughts, naturally their work is on permanent view at Michelin-starred SPQR, A16, A16 Rockridge, Bar Crudo, and Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous, and The Starling.
About the author: Daniel Levin Becker is a critic, editor, translator, and Oulipian. He lives in Oakland.
