Tom Olson’s flipbook War and Peace for Busy Readers has been adapted into a 24″ x 36″ archival, acid-free print, as recently shown in North Adams’ Gallery 51. In this twist on the timeless classic, we narrowly avoid the horrors of war and cut straight to some groovy flowers.
About the Artist
Tom Olson was a young philosophy student in Ithaca, New York, when he decided that flipbooks were a more effective means of communication than pamphleting. Between the years 1978-79, Olson created a timeless series of flip books exploring life, love, loss, and the adventures of a little circle. Today, he lives in Washington, DC, where he is happily married with two daughters and has a successful career as an attorney.
