Ruin the Yuletide with 'We Do Christmas'!

Maybe you're fed up with the overly cheerful zombie consumption-fest of the holiday season, or maybe you just have an ice-dry sense of humor. In either case, We Do Christmas, the newest title in Dung Beetle's satirical Reading Scheme series, is the perfect, dark little Stocking Stuffer for you! In this compact volume, Mummy, John and Susan go out on a thrilling Christmas adventure. Over the course of 48 whip-sharp pages, Mummy interrogates Santa Claus and exposes his "vicious program of indoctrination," stripping Christmas of all its magic and meaning, for the benefit of mankind.

FEATURED STORE

Graham Foundation Bookshop

The Graham Foundation Bookshop is committed to the dissemination of the architecture book as a vital space for experimentation and incubation of ideas that shape architecture culture. The only architecture bookstore in Chicago, The Graham Foundation Bookshop is committed to accessibility, experimentation, and supporting new directions in the field of publishing. It opened in 2013 when the Graham commissioned Chicago-based designer Ania Jaworska to design a bookshop for the historic mansion where the Foundation is located. Since then, the Graham Foundation Bookshop’s selection of grant-funded titles, publications related to its public programs, and new printed matter reflect the state of the field and encourage its development. Since its founding in 1956, the Chicago based Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts has been dedicated to the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society. For over sixty years, the Foundation has supported the publication of such seminal architecture books as "Complexity and Contradiction" by Robert Venturi, released in 1966, Rem Koolhaas’ "Delirious New York," published in 1978, and "Cedric Price Works 1952–2003," written and edited by Samantha Hardingham, published in 2017. In the last decade alone, the Graham Foundation has supported the production of more than 450 publications about art, design, and architecture from around the world.
