Art is what keeps life from being like one long tax audit. Our massive (and colorful) array of Art Books bring you right into the center of the action, from how-to guides putting you behind the wheel that drives art's engine to history books offering the inside story on everything from cartoons to cubism. You'll find artists like Keri Smith and respected art critics like Edmund de Waal painting pictures with words, and that's just for starters. The Art Books offered at Alibris are so abundant you're liable to have an art attack!
Presenting pop philosophy. The world knows Andy Warhol as the pop art pioneer who showed us that art could be as much about the concept as it was about the content. But even while he was changing the art world, Warhol expanding into other areas, from mentoring rock & roll iconoclasts The Velvet Underground to founding Interview magazine. So why not enter into the realm of philosophy too? Well, that's exactly what the white-haired wonder did back in 1975. Call it a tribute to Warhol's artistry that it's not only sharply satirical, it's often oddly profound.
