Reading Andy Warhol

Was Andy Warhol (1928-1987) an intellectual or a comic book reader? Anyway, he loved books. The medium of printing occupied him since his days of study and from then on throughout his life. Beginning with illustrations for famous stories by Truman Capote or Katherine Anne Porter, as a successful graphic artist he also created playful theme books, which he distributed as promotional gifts in the New York fashion world. He designed book covers for major publishers and enriched the poetry collections of his friends with silkscreens and lithographs. In his own illustrated books, he documented the cinematic and photographic work of his Factory. Warhol went beyond conventional literary genres by transcribing and publishing tape recordings. This extensive volume presents his book design and literary achievements from an art-historical and literary-theoretical perspective for the first time.
