The Book


Glitch Designing Imperfection

"Observed through the lens of a handsome
coffee table book, the amassed images
garner a deeper appreciation for the
digital fluke and make a convincing case
for accidents as source of inspiration."

Doug Black for Wallpaper

"Kinda trippy, and definitely techy."
Danny Allen - Gizmodo


(10 Stars)

"part coffee table art book,
part technological disaster with 206 images
of glorious computer foul-ups.

The Awesomer

"...contributors took inspiration from those
silicon freakouts to provide beautiful visuals
that make the Windows BSOD look like
the cold authoritarian artifact that it is.

Adrian Covert - PopSci

"...the definitive resource on the visual
art of synthetic chaos. "

Graham for Spike Jones' We love You So Blog
