For his eagerly awaited first book, acclaimed artist Olly Moss has had the simple but brilliant idea of putting his own twist on the Victorian art of silhouette portraits. While this lovingly crafted volume might look as if it’s from the 1890s, its pages contain today’s favourite cult characters from movies, TV, comics and videogames. Can you recognise them all?

Olly is very special. A new Brit great who straddles the cool of Banksy, the humour of Shrigley and a wit all of his own.”
Duncan Jones (director of
Moon and Source Code), from his Foreword

“Bold graphics, serious inspiration and a wry sense of humour.”
New York Times

“One of the most in demand and influential pop culture artists today.”
