In an era rife with listicles and churn-and-burn graphics, TENS manages to hit that rare sweet spot of being able to reel you in, without sacrificing craftsmanship, depth and detail. Belgian-based illustrator Tom De Geeter brings us a fresh new take on the Top Ten List, with a thoughtfully-curated lineup of contributors, all set to a backdrop of his bold yet delicate line drawings.

TENS’ open-format categories (think sit-coms, philosophers and hockey goons, alike) shed light on each featured artist’s personality, and touch upon themes of nostalgia, humor, inspiration, and camp. The result is a compelling and remarkably-crafted anthology worthy of a home upon the most discerning of coffee tables.

Curated, illustrated and designed by Tom De Geeter
