Andy – A Factual Fairytale. Leben und Werk von Andy WarholbyTypex

Translation: Cornelia Holfelder-von der Tann


Extract (German)

Andy Warhol – the complete works! How do you tell the story of a mysterious, complex and contradictory artist? Dutch illustrator Typex does it best: in alternating styles and various allusions. The book's opulence is recognizable from a distance. Silver gilded edges allude to Warhol's second Factory, from 1964 to 1968 in Manhattan, whose walls he lined with aluminum foil, it eventually became known as the Silver Factory. Ten chapters, not including introduction and credits, tell the story of the poor son of immigrants, his highlights and his falls. We are taken on a fast and intense journey. The times are brought to life through appearances of prominent artists, cultural figures and music. Follow the instructions on the back cover, and don't read more than one chapter at a time. This will guarantee the perfect experience!
