Created in every thinkable medium, the Norman/Daryl archetype is captured in tattoo designs, cakes, pencil sketches, mosaics, chalk drawings, digital art, and even children sketches from his youngest fans. And Norman's fans aren't your average fans. With over 3,000 submissions from all over the world-Japan, Spain, Mexico, England, Australia, Italy, Hungary, Brazil, Austria, Indonesia, the US-it was no small feat for Norman to select over 100 pieces that will appear in this beautifully designed book. It's real art made by real people for real people.
