So here it is:
What's the book about?
LGF: Photography, illustrations and ideas that came out as drawings.
When I first read the name, I thought you were Russian.
LGF: Haha. No. I see many twisted frowns when people try to read “KNOTORYUS” out loud. Thus far, only one guy ever got it right without even blinking. He was pretty fried, though. Maybe that’s what did it.
But you do have good taste?
LGF: Who says Russians don’t have good taste? Aside from borsjt, maybe. And those male ice-skaters with way too much cleavage. What’s up with that?
There's a rather disturbing drawing of someone's balls being served on a plate. They looked old. Who’s got old balls then?
LGF: It’s a play on the ‘revenge is a dish best served cold’ cliché. You can imagine those balls belong to your annoyingly successful ex-lover, your boss or that guy on TV who just won’t shut up. These KNOTORYUS balls are for you.
What’s the best time ‘o’ day to flick through FACE EVERYBODY AND RULE?
LGF: 3 A.M. After you’ve been lying awake for hours. Your eyes are burning and the back of your brain is buzzing like an old fridge. Flick through our book, turn off the lights and let it all sink in. Aaaaah…sweet dreams.
