We are drawn to the graphic beauty of the images which still resonate strongly today. As described by its publisher, “this book…explores the styles, sources, and stars of the Pop Art phenomenon. From Lichtenstein’s comic book aesthetics to Warhol’s images of Marilyn, it reveals how a movement that interrogated the icons of its time came to produce icons of its own.”
