Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol: A Factual Fairytale

From the 32 canvas Campbell?s Soup Cans to the Marilyn Diptych, Andy Warhol?s silk-screen prints are the epitome of Pop Art: witty, gimmicky and unafraid of repetition. Obsessed with consumerism and the cult of celebrity, Warhol (1928?1987) exalted the ?surface of things??and yet he was a man of deep complexity. In Andy, Typex captures the remarkable life of the king of Po From the 32 canvas Campbell?s Soup Cans to the Marilyn Diptych, Andy Warhol?s silk-screen prints are the ...

    There are literally hundreds, possibly thousands, of biographies of Andy Warhol out there. I had home two of them, Andy, Typex?s 562-page wild comics biography of Warhol and also This is Warhol, Catherine Ingram's 80 page board book for adults. I mean, I like Warhol well enough, and ...

    This is pretty good. I enjoyed the parts I reads, it's interestingly crafted. But I just have other things to read... ...

    Warhol, a little brilliant, and (quite a) little more obnoxious. Fun to read, and the German translation is excellent. ...

    Hot Take: If you are interested in the New York art scene from 1960s Greenwich Village to 1980s Studio 54, if you want to meet some of the first out celebrity trans women, or you simply want to learn about or celebrate the pop artist Andy Warhol, this massive work of art is for you! I...

    Ik ben onder de indruk van wat Typex heeft gemaakt, hoe de man zich enkele jaren heeft vastgebeten op dit onderwerp en al zijn creativiteit en talent heeft losgelaten op ongeveer 600 pagina's. Alle aspecten van de man worden in beeld gebracht maar vaak is het, net als de persoon die i...

    Bewonderenswaardige prestatie. Een gigantisch werk, letterlijk en figuurlijk. Het boek weegt 1,55 kg. Dat bevordert niet echt het leesgemak. Als grafische roman (sjiek stripverhaal) wat mij betreft niet helemaal geslaagd. Door de veelheid aan personages die ook nog eens van uiterlijk w...

    Prachtig boek. Wel even wennen dat elk deel in een eigen stijl is getekend, varirend van deel 4 zoals die lelijke strips vroeger in de Tina, tot een spetterend deel 8 en voor mij deel 6 als topper (met fantastisch oogwit voor Valerie Solanas op pagina 310). Erg sympathiek ben ik An...

    Read in Dutch. First of all; the design itself is amazing. Heavy, with golden pages. Cover like a cereal box, filled with hundreds of beautiful spreads. The juxtaposition between the gilded pages and the tacky covers are very much Warhol. It's an intense read that will make you ...

    For years I've dismissed Warhol, in part because of his ubiquity and in part because of his simplicity - while I wouldn't have gone so far as to call him a hack, I've felt that he's overrated, and that in some ways he spoiled modernism (whatever that means) and pointed the way to a sha...

    Lettura amena, divertente. Da prendere con lo stesso spirito con cui si vuole bene a Warhol. Ma questo prima di tutto un oggettino da avere in libreria. ...
