Any year that Adam Koford (aka Ape Lad) publishes a new book is a good year. The Disney artist joined Dean Putney and I to talk about his newest book of cartoons, Down with the Laugh-Out-Loud Cats, which he self-published so he could have more control over its design. And Dean tells a similar story about his forthcoming book of World War One photos taken by his great-grandfather, called Walter Koessler 1914-1918.
We also talked about the amazing Briggs & Riley Domestic Carry-On Expandable Roller, and the equally amazing Kickstarter project for the Heirloom Chemistry Set. And much more!
