Andy Warhol, the iconic Pop artist, presented himself as the vacuous, dumb kid, famously saying, "If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings . and there I am. There's nothing behind it." This book penetrates the surface and explores Warhol's art from his beginnings as a commercial artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter. Vivid illustrations reveal Andy's worlds: his childhood in Pittsburgh, his chaotic Manhattan mansion, and the Silver Factory, where New York's bright new things hung out and had fun.
Series writer Catherine Ingram brings her extensive knowledge to the book, while specially commissioned illustrations by Andrew Rae vividly portray the text.
This title is appropriate for ages 14 and up

" Succinct and inexpensive, these short but lovely-looking books explain complicated ideas and histories with wit and great cunning." Rachel Cooke.
"Ingram's approach embodies Tolstoy's assertion that art is about emotional infectiousness. She tells a living story, at once illuminating and vibrantly human, rather than weaving a static tapestry of facts. The result is a book that's inviting without compromising its intelligence." Maria Popova, Brainpickings
Rae's attention to detail is impressive: artwork helps paint a vivid picture of the artist's surroundings and upbringings, and bring to life personal moments. Rachael Steven, Creative Review
"The books do indeed feel vibrant...Upon opening the book, the reader is able to explore the life and works of Warhol...without being lectured, unveiling the shroud of mystery that surrounds [this] mythical figure." Nara Shin, Cool Hunting.
As an obsessive fan of Andy Warhol and comics, I squealed with glee when I saw a new project that smartly combines the two." Pop Candy, USA Today.
