  • The Unknown Portraits book / $30.00
  • The Unknown Portraits, a book published by Magic Pony. This publication documents a unique portraiture project spanning four years of our travels.
     
    Originating from a found photo album unearthed in a Venice Beach thrift shop, kozy was inspired to create imagined personae extrapolating on the essence of these lost photographs. This clothbound hardcover is comprised solely of small, detailed graphite portraits, each piece captures the surreal humor and irreverence that has become a trademark of our work.
     
    Illuminating select portraits are short stories inspired and imagined by a community of artist friends and writers including Pasha Malla, Mark “frosty” McNeill, Ryan Sands, Mariko Tamaki, Maggie MacDonald, Nick Flanagan and Porous Walker.
     
    Book designed by Stephen Cober of Magic Pony.
