Based on dozens of interviews and previously unpublished material, Factory Made is the most comprehensive account to date of the artistic aura in the 60s. During the period Warhol was producing his most iconic art: Marilyn, Campbell Soup and Brillo boxes, Steven Watson shows how the ever-changing cast of characters at the Silver Factory - an eclectic and eccentric mix of artists, poets, musicians, filmmakers, hustlers and drag queens - interacted to create more than five hundred movies, a now-classic rock album and thousands of photographs and paintings.
