In case you needed more incentive to geek out over the work of Canadian artist Marcel Dzama, his new book, Marcel Dzama: Sower of Discord, includes a foreword by the artist Raymond Pettibon (you know, the guy who created the Black Flag logo), three original Dave Eggers short stories inspired by Dzama’s work, an essay by the art historian Bradley Bailey, and an interview with Dzama by filmmaker Spike Jonze.

The book collects hundreds of Dzama’s best works, a few of which we’re delighted to share with you.
