Description - Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol by Typex

From the thirty-two 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 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 Pop Art, from his working-class upbringing in Pittsburgh to the dizzying heights of his celebrity. Spanning a period that began with the "talkies" and ended with the advent of house music, it is also a memorable portrait of 20th century pop culture and the stars who defined it: from Elvis to Greta Garbo, Truman Capote to Lou Reed.

Taking in Warhol's early career as a commercial illustrator, his relationship with the Velvet Underground and the development of his own instantly recognisable style, Typex's ANDY is an exhilarating portrait of a transcendent artist and a master self-publicist. Intensively researched and historically accurate, this 568-page graphic biography has gained the approval of the Warhol Foundation.
