This past weekend, at the Aperture Book Bazaar, I discovered Notes on Raising Frogs for $$$, a guide offering supplementary information and anecdotes to Jason Fulford’s photo book, Raising Frogs for $$$.
I had thumbed through Raising Frogs for $$$ a few times in the past. It contains a compilation of quiet images and absolutely no frog-breeding instructions. In fact, it barely contains any text at all. It has a title, a dedication (“For Beach Ball, Gussie and Wizard”) and eight chapter headings, each as misleading as the next.
I was not captivated by the book (perhaps due to my own lazy thinking) until I encountered it on The Ice Plant table at the Aperture Book Fair alongside it’s Cliff’s Notes style compendium. Notes on Raising Frogs for $$$ is a fun read for fans of Jason Fulford, compendiums and/or absurdism.
Here are a few experts from Raising Frogs for $$$ and Notes on Raising Frogs for $$$ side by side:
