Veeptopus: Vice Presidents with Octopuses on Their Heads Is Now On Sale!
48 hand-drawn, hand-painted portraits of every U.S. vice president with an octopus on his head.
The art of Veeptopus has been featured in BuzzFeed, BoingBoing, i09 and Huffington Post. Now all of that wonderful, weird tentacle-bedecked art is available in one handsomely produced tome.
But this is much more than an art book. Each portrait has weird facts on each veep. For instance, did you know that Charles G. Dawes was not only Calvin Coolidge's VP but he also won the Peace Prize AND wrote a #1 pop hit? Did you know that President Madison had not one but two vice presidents die under his watch? Did you know we once had a veep named Hannibal? Well, you learn this and a whole lot more in this book. Use this vice presidential trivia to impress co-workers, troll on the internet or paper over awkward moments during dates. A guaranteed conversation starter.
Veeptopus: Vice Presidents with Octopuses on Their Heads truly is a book like no other. It makes a great holiday gift for that weird uncle who seemingly has everything.
Check out the Amazon reviews:

"A fun, quirky, and beautifully designed coffee table book. Test your VP knowledge while you giggle at them with octopuses on their heads.
After getting laid off from a large tech company four years ago, I decided to reinvent my life in the most rational way possible: I picked up a pen and began drawing portraits of every single U.S. vice president with an octopus on his head. My insane project has been written up in BuzzFeed, Boingboing, i09, Huffington Post and other sites. For some reason, it struck a chord and a bunch of people gave me money on Kickstarter to turn my portraits into a single volume called Veeptopus: 48 Vice Presidents with Octopuses on Their Heads. Life is funny.
