Snail World: Life in the Slimelight is a collection of absorbing snapshots from an alternate universe where snails drink bubble tea at the mall, hit tiny bongs, and get beamed up into flying saucers. Real snails and frogs bring to life miniature scenes meticulously created by artists Aleia Murawski and Sam Copeland, inspired by moody, cinematic moments and nostalgic Americana.
These dreamlike and often hilarious images evoke the melodrama of daily life: a snail alone in an apartment with one last box to move; two snails getting slime all over grandma's plastic-covered armchairs; a frog doing karaoke in a heart-shaped hot tub. With hidden details to discover each time you flip through the pages, Snail World is a quirky celebration of the (very) little things in life.
