Book News Annotation:
This oversized volume (9.25x11.25") presents a full homage to the acclaimed and ubiquitous American artist, whose paintings and graphic art are presented in full-page color plates, grouped together not chronologically, but by theme. Two essays introduce the volume. The plates are accompanied by captions giving the title and date, allowing this pithy, satirical, funny, and perennially relevant work to stand on its own. The volume is not indexed. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
