The Extreme Self

CAD 24.50

If you’re wondering why the inside of your head feels so strange these days, this book has the answers. The Extreme Self is a new kind of graphic novel that shows how you’ve been morphing into something else.


It’s about the remaking of your interior world as the exterior world becomes more unfamiliar and uncertain. Basar, Coupland and Obrist’s cult prequel, The Age of Earthquakes: A Guide to the Extreme Present, was hailed as “a meditation on the madness of our media” (Dazed) and “an abstract representation of how we feel about our digital world” (Hello!). 


Find out what's really happening to you in these accelerated tales from an even more accelerated culture.



Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland, Hans Ulrich Obrist
