This extensive volume presents Warhol's achievements in book design and writing from the standpoints of art history and literary theory.

Andy Warhol loved books and from his student days onward, he was fascinated by the medium of print. Starting with illustrations for famous novels by Truman Capote or Katherine Anne Porter, he was a successful graphic designer who also made playful thematic booklets that he handed out to New York’s fashion scene as advertising. He designed covers for large publishing companies and made silkscreens and lithographs for the covers of poetry books written by author friends. In his own books he documented the film and photographic work done at his Factory. Warhol blasted apart the usual genres of literature by having sound recordings transcribed and published.
