The rest of the book is full of pictures-mostly Warhol's more famous images, but also some snapshots of Andy.

In an excellent essay in the front of this small book, Tretiack places Warhol historically and esthetically, hitting all the high points of Warhol's flamboyant career and stylishly discussing the legacy of this '60s bad boy. The rest of the book is full of pictures-mostly Warhol's more famous images, but also some snapshots of Andy. Missing are a few pictures of Warhol's graceful, elegant shoe drawings and recipe illustrations, showing the kind of fine-art facility with which the artist began his career.

Andy Warhol carried a camera with him everywhere he went and, taken from ten years of extraordinary shots, his America aspires . The most candid work by Andy Warhol.

Andy Warhol carried a camera with him everywhere he went and, taken from ten years of extraordinary shots, his America aspires to the strange beauty and staggering contradictions of the country itself. Exploring his greatest obsessions - including image and celebrity - he photographs wrestlers and 'He created his own universe and became its star' David Cronenberg, Guardian.

There will always be a pre- and a post-Warhol, writes Philippe Tretiack, and that post-Warhol period is having difficulty establishing itself. Andy Warhol first found success as an award-winning commercial artist in New York. He soon put the commercial techniques he learned as an illustrator to work in his now-famous studio, dubbed the Factory.

Andy Warhol was born to Slovakian parents in 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. When he was eight years old, he contracted Chorea (a neurological disease), which confined him to bed. To keep him entertained during his recovery, his mother gave him drawing lessons. Warhol developed a love for the medium, and he continued to draw in his spare time upon regaining his health.

Andy Warhol first found success as an award-winning commercial artist in New York. He soon put the commercial techniques he learned as an illustrator to work in his now-famous studio, dubbed the "Factory." Appropriately enough, the artist once said, "I want to be a machine," reiterating the commercial, serial themes displayed in his paintings. Surrounding himself with a notorious coterie of assistants - from drifters and junkies to musicians and "poor little rich kids" - Warhol installed himself in his Factory, which itself quickly became New York's most famous counter-culture nucleus.Ghostly pale and silver-wigged, Andy Warhol has become an icon himself, an impenetrable enigma who became one of the most singularly identifiable figures of the turbulent sixties. And while Warhol's work may be best known for its stark reflections of popular and commercial culture, the artist did not hesitate to explore some of the more sinister traits of his era - from war and criminality. His grainy images of highway accidents and his serial panels of the handgun or the electric chair seem to drown emotion while at the same time recovering some of the shock power lost in the media's trivialization of disaster. Warhol's work has been called both naive and sophisticated, thought-provoking and mindless, superficial and profound, and the furor he created refuses to die down - more than a decade after the artist's death. This book explores the paradox of Andy Warhol's life and work with flair and intelligence and brings all the vibrance, humor, and genius of his work into full view.

Anyone who is interested in Andy Warhol's interviews and written work knows that he had a penchant for giving seemingly inane off the cuff anwers to any question posed to him. The beauty of his quips is that they are often amazingly insightful whilst simultaneously maddeningly flippant. Interestingly, in books such as 'Popism' and 'A Philosophy...' we are told that Andy's input was minimal and that we mustn't consider them to actually 'be' by him, even though in these and in the Warhol artwork that others claim as their own, Andy's genius seems to permeate them.
One of the things that makes this book, 'Andy Warhol's America' interesting is that it leaves little doubt that virtually everything in it is from Andy himself (except perhaps the introductory paragraph which has the characteristics of someone speaking for Andy) because the material is just not commercial or avant garde enough for anyone to wish to claim it.
This is a book of snaps by Andy Warhol which nominally pertain to various chapter headings: People, All-stars, Natural History, Vogue, etc. Accompanying these is commentary by Andy. Here, you will witness the only example I am aware of in which Andy makes unequivocal political statements, allowing us a glimpse of his world view. While he is not strident, he is also not coy as in the McGovern political campaign poster he made in the 1970's. This really seems to be Andy's voice.
In the photographs one is constantly wowed by the effective use he makes of his little poloroid: amazing really. He has a knack for seeing the ironic or dramatic or unusual and capturing it. Especially gratifying are the shots which appear to be 'shot from the hip' yet somehow incorporate the oddly juxtaposed elements into an effective framework that 'gets' the subject he is shooting. Perhaps because one knows they are by the great Andy Warhol one finds the photographs captivating enough so that one wouldn't miss the accompanying text and perhaps this is why few of them contain identified subjects. It is also amusing that Andy had a better eye for capturing the male physique than he had for the female.
I rate this only three stars because the production seems more like a magazine than a soft-bound art book. This may have been intentional, to wit creating a 'Vogue' magazine view of America or it may be attributable to the general decline in print production values that American bookdom was laboring under when this book was made. Whatever it is, this books loses a star or two for being less well-made than one would expect at the price.

I am an artist, my last year of highschool my art teacher told me to research about Andy Warhol in the hopes it may spark creativity ideas into my work. My first year of attending art college (2 and + half years ago) the first book I found in the library was this and since then I didn't want to give it back. This book became an ultra source of inspiration for me and and I didn't really know who Andy Warhol really was and about his work until I read this. I'm extremely big on pop culture and didn't know how much I would related to Andy's work. I searched many book stores/dealers for the longest to find it but couldn't or the price was to high for my budget. The condition of the book for the price I bought to for from this dealer (HookedonBooksPA) was beyond my expectation! It seems to be read once and way better condition than when I read it from the library! I want to thank you HookedonBooksPA very much!!! I appreciated the little thank you note on the receipt plus the adding of "Swiss" to my last name on the package as well ;D haha.

I must admit-my brain was scattered in the beginning. But once I joined the speed trip, (mentally), I was caught up in the moment that lasted for days.

Purchased the book after learning my mother was the subjects of one of his paintings in this series. As expected, death and disaster is a depressing subject. I was very interested in the story behind this and other series of his.

This is THE best Warhol book I own. If you love Warhol and you love photography, you will love this book. Nicely researched and quality printing too.

It did come in time for Christams for my son wanted to read this book and toild my wife and me thank you dad and Mom.

Great book showing progress of Warhols work.
Th sections are well organized
most people won't like this...I think you have to be relatively self-directed to enjoy the book, as it consists of transcribed tape recordings, it is not so much served up to you as a novel by an author but rather more like a pile of files dumped on your table by an editor
