Richmond artist Attaboy has created The Book of Hugs, a “perfect guide to awkwardly squeezing someone with affection.”
The Richmond Art Center alerted us to the local artist’s new book on its Facebook page Wednesday.
According to the book’s description on Amazon, “The Book of Hugs” features “way too many pages of hilariously illustrated uncomfortable embraces.”
“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.”
Attaboy also authored and illustrated of The Polka Dots: Learn to Polka (2012) and the picture book You Might Be a Monster (& Other Stories I just Made Up). The artist also co-created a secret animation project that will surface this year. Attaboy, also known as Atta, also co-founded the critically acclaimed best selling New Contemporary Art Magazine Hi-Fructose with his wife Annie Owens.
