The Warhol Look
By Mark Francis and Margery King.
A lavish celebration of Warhol's immense impact on art, culture and fashion. This heavily illustrated reference book goes deep into the sartorial history of Warhol, his superstars and celebrity friends. From his fashion drawings of the 50s, as well as photos by the great fashion photographers of the period and documentation of window displays by Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and others. To the downtown avant-garde scene of the 60s 'Silver Factory' era. And on through the nightclub scene of the 70s, and the East Village art and club scene of the late 70s and 80s. So many scenes! So many looks! But it doesn’t end there. There are also fascinating essays by Hilton Als, Judith Goldman, Bruce Hainley, Richard Martin (!), Glenn O'Brien (!!), Barry Paris, John W. Smith, Thomas Sokolowski, Peter Wollen.
This is an important book and a must-have for Warhol obsessives.
