Spanning a decade of its subject’s multifaceted career, Cosima von Bonin: Character Appropriation features the Kenya-born, Germany-based artist’s signature textile paintings, architectural sculptures, and absurdly outsized stuffed animals. In addition to a generous selection of colorful images of Cosima von Bonin’s playful yet deeply thoughtful and suggestive work, the book features an essay by exhibition curator Meredith Malone as well as the latest hilariously confounding installment in a series of fictional “conversations” between von Bonin and Daffy Duck, “Up a Chic Creek,” written by von Bonin’s longtime collaborator Dirk von Lowtzow, a musician and art critic.
            Arriving at the same time as von Bonin’s new Lazy Susan series of exhibitions touring across Europe—with stops in Rotterdam, Bristol, Geneva, and Cologne—Cosima von Bonin provides a valuable snapshot of this leading international artist’s work.
