Hi-Fructose Magazine co-founder and Long Island native Attaboy returns to sign the second printing of his latest humor book “The Book of Hugs” at Haven Gallery in Northport, LI.. A Q & A with the artist will kick off the night at 6:15pm.
Copies of “The Book of Hugs” along with Attaboy’s toys, prints, art and upcoming book “The Book of Butts”, will be available for purchase at the gallery.
Artist, publisher and toy inventor Attaboy (AKA Daniel Seifert) started his career designing toys for Milton Bradley and Hasbro. Later he went out on his own to create designer toys for himself (The Axtrx , the Gooberry), license his work as books and calendars, and apparel, and to create/direct animation properties (like 2007’s Too Many Robots for the Disney Channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iZOAhg9BC4) and tour with his strange band Attaboy and Burke and their medicine show (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr7frcPUHGQ).
About the Book of Hugs:
Know someone who needs a hug? The Book of Hugs by Attaboy is a perfect guide to awkwardly squeezing someone with affection. Featuring way too many pages of hilariously illustrated uncomfortable embraces, The Book of Hugs is stupid fun with ridiculous heart. Have you been hugging wrong the entire time? Are you a mismatched hugger? Have you ever done a “Lean and Pat Hug?” Or perhaps you just hug to smell someone’s coconut shampoo. Are you an over-compensating hugger? Or maybe you suffer from the “Fear of Commitment Hug?” Find out in the Book of Hugs. Plus! Get tips on Who to Hug, How to Hug, When Not to Hug, plus the very important Who NOT to Hug. Also includes a guide to the Necessary Equipment Needed For Hugging! After reading this book, you’ll never hug the same again. A ridiculously funny guide to hugging, an activity which we all take for granted, The Book of Hugs is a perfect gift for an unsuspecting friend, lover or even for yourself! (Just think twice before trying some of them publicly) The Book of Hugs is published by Attaboy’s Yumfactory and Last Gasp. (at Haven Gallery)
