BOOKSELLER TRADE ANNOTATION

A counter-culture book of the highest order. Great fun! Subversive, funny, biting art made from RUBBER stamps out of a little shop in Paris.
  • ABOUT THE ARTIST: Vincent Sardon is a radically independent artist who began his career as political cartoonist for the left-wing Liberation, then, disillusioned, he set out on his own to make rubber stamps. He has an ardent cult following in France where a book about him Le Tampographe, is now in its third printing. A good comparison for him would be the US author/humorist/ cartoonist David Rees (Get YOur War On , How to Sharpen Pencil). He is the right artist for ATLAS OBSCURA crowd.
  • ABOUT THE BOOK: Some of it is word based (I don't give a Fuck, PIss Off) and many have intricate drawings -- naked gay cowboys, the middle finger, skeletons, and dragon flies. He even has "publisher stamps" with manuscript rejections and publisher correspondence ("We are pleased to announce that we will be publishing your autobiography, however your life will be as a shitty as ever.") This is a book for our times, funny and raunchy, it's also a visual delight. Who doesn't want a stamp right now that says,"Shut the Fuck Up"? Trump has a cameo on a page of stamped images of Dictators and Despots. A lefty political gift book for people who loved "We Go to the Gallery"
  • PRESS & PROMO: Working with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy on book-related event(s) and a pop-up exhibition. Launch at NY Artsist Book Fair. Sardon has strong social media presence: 60,000 followers on Facebook. Plus, Sardon produces videos that will be used in promotion. BEA giveaway of the publisher stamps on small cards.

Vincent Sardon: The Stampographer


The Stampographer traverses the fantastic, anarchic imagination of Parisian artist Vincent Sardon (born 1970), whose dark, combative sense of humor is infused with Dadaist subversion and Pataphysical play.

Using rubber stamps he designs and manufactures himself, Sardon commandeers a medium often associated with petty and idiotic displays of bureaucratic power, then uses those stamps not to assert authority, but to refuse it. He scours the Parisian landscape as well as the world at large, skewering the power-hungry and the pretentious, reveling in the vulgar and profane.

In The Stampographer, there are insults in multiple languages, sadomasochistic Christmas ornaments, and a miniature Kamasutra with an auto-erotic Jesus. Sardon also wields the stamp as satirical device, deconstructing Warhol portraits into primary colors, turning ink blots into Pollock paint drips, and clarifying just what Yves Klein did with women's bodies. Yet Sardon’s razor-sharp wit is tinged with the irony of his exquisite sense of beauty. The stamps are rarely static—they have an animating magic, whether boxers are punching faces out of place or dragonflies seemingly hover over the page.

Sardon’s work is provocative in its subject matter as well as in its process and dissemination: he not only stands defiantly outside the art world’s modes of commerce but his artworks (the rubber stamps themselves) are actually the means with which anyone can make a work of their own. The Stampographer introduces English-speaking readers to one of the most unusual and original voices in contemporary French culture.
