EARLY REVIEWS OF BAMUSERS: MUSINGS IN ART
“Leafing through Bamusers is like taking your subconscious to a fun party. This is an artful book of amusing ideas that are a category unto themselves.”
– Marjorie Sarnat, Artist and Author of the Art Studio Secrets book series
“There are things which should be celebrated and cherished, things the art world often overlooks...randomness, humor, even kitsch. These have great significance and Bamusers gives these to us with brilliance and without apology. This book is a little treasure, a glimpse into Bruce’s joyful world of whimsy.”
– Robert Townsend, Artist
