Book report—Tim Lahan, ‘Never Been Better’

What is Tim Lahan(1) trying to tell us? If you take Never Been Better—his newish zine release on Melbourne imprint Heavytime—at face value, the news ain’t great. The mono-riso zine showcases a recurring motif in the New York–based illustrator’s work: deflated car tyres, seemingly melting into the ground, emblazoned with similarly deflated words. ‘QUITTING IS EASY’ reads one tyre. ‘AS GOOD AS IT GETS’ reads another. The whole thing makes me feel a bit sick. I love it.

Never Been Better is available from our shop, alongside a selection of Heavytime titles.
