This neat little curio offers exactly what the title suggests, silhouettes from popular culture. There are no words, and there is little color. It’s just a book full of mostly black and white character profiles (reprinting artworks created from laser-cut paper) styled after Victorian cameos.
It’s a fun thing to flip though though, and a worthy conversation starter to leave laying on a coffee table or the like. Moss’s subjects run the gamut from TV and movies, to video games, comics, and music. Some are pretty esoteric, and a handful even left me stumped.
It’s unlikely you’ll want to spend more than a few minutes with this book, but for what it is, it’s quite enjoyable. If this is the sort of knickknack you like to keep laying around, go nuts.
