Souvenir Sunday: Doug Lansky’s “Crap Souvenirs”

Doug Lansky’s new book – Crap Souvenirs – contains more than 150 photos of the sort of offbeat and wacky souvenirs you might find in gifts shops at airports and on the street surrounding major attractions such as the Vatican in Rome and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Things like a small-scale replica of Mt. Rushmore that doubles as a lamp –

And a tie made out of a pesky cane toad in Australia –

Lansky told me that he found a lot of the souvenirs in the book while hanging around airport gift shops. So the book – and the souvenirs in it – are just perfect for Souvenir Sunday on
