A giftbook for any fan of popular culture, packed with over 800 of the very best of the acclaimed Flipflopflyin' minipops, cult illustrations from Craig Robinson. This book is the first-ever collection of Robinson's ever-expanding army of miniature pixellated people (including comedians/popstars/movies/cartoon characters...no-one is safe) Leaf through the book and identify as many minipops as you can, should you get stuck, the answers appear in the back of the book, in Robinson's own witty, inimitable words. Ideal post-pub entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minipops are maxi-addictive. 20 April 2005
Format:Hardcover
It's pretty addictive, and mini-pops are irresistible, but probably only to young fogeys like myself. You need a sense of history, of personal memory. You look at these teeny, tiny pixellated creations and you squint, and you say to yourself "yes, that's whatsisname", and you write the name in and you are, of course, wrong. But you look at the correct answer, and you say "of course!"
The guy who invented minipops deserves to retire on it. The Excel spreadsheet version of this has wasted an awful lot of time in our office. If you are a boss, buy the paper version as a gift for your staff - it'll be more productive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance in Pixels! 26 Nov 2004
Format:Hardcover
Blimey, what a book!
Page after page of pure, pixelized, greatness. Once I picked it up, I literaly, couldn't put it down! As soon as you get to the first page you find yourself incoherently muttering things like "Who's that?", "I know that one!" and "Hmm....I look in the glossary for that one...".
The Glossary at the back of the book explains who each of the 'Minpops' are and provided with them, hearty opinions. Minipops is a (sometimes nostalgic) journey through music, TV (and just about everything else!) through the medium of Pixel Art.
Craig Robinson has his illustration down a fine art; His illustration are quite intricate when it comes to down to fine details! I strongly advise you to buy this truly special book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The dog needs feeding! 11 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have been a fan of Craig Robinson & his [...] exploits for some time; since his official Guess the minipop Stars page I received via e-mail over a year ago. I was lucky enough to acquire a signed copy of the book & promptly bought many more copies (10+) as stocking fillers for family and friends. I can't recommend this book any higher...buy it...he has a 'literarystruck' dog called Billy to keep in the style he's become accustomed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minipop Mania 11 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Actually bought this as a result of a minipops quiz circulated on an Excel spreadsheet and couldn't complete all the answers. Good for a laugh as is it's sister book, the minipops atlas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridonkulously amusing 11 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
wee people! the sense of satisfaction at guessing them is great. I loved looking for my favourite band, the Ramones. Some are really hard, others very obvious. Many are hilarious. The wife loves it too!!!
