Goully Sandro Kopp

At some point in everyone's lives, Pooh Bear and Piglet lose their appeal and turn from adored comfort objects to raggedy reminders of childhood – something to be chucked into the back of a cupboard or shoved away in an attic. But where Sandro Kopp once asked his portrait subjects to sit for him over Skype, he's now requested their cuddly toys, which form the basis of his new work, Fiercely Loved, which opens for a private view tonight at Timothy Everest. Using oil paint, Kopp restores the solemnity and gravitas of these childhood tchotkes, seeking out the material imprints of their owner's personalities and adolescent memories – and reminding us of the toys we leave behind as we enter adulthood.

Robots and Donuts

Robots and donuts is a whimsical collection of paintings from Eric Joyner. He has realized that museums worldwide don't have enough robots and donuts to entertain kids, that's how this book come about. It's a 184-page paperback filled with large reproductions of his oil paintings.

The book's packed with toy robots that are from the 40s to 60s, given life and put into strange situations. There are robots fending off aliens, punching donuts, waiting for a date at a restaurant or boxing in a ring.

This is a humorous and wacky book. Robots and donuts (with some aliens and dinosaurs) aren't the sort of subjects you would expect to fill a book.
