Product Description


'Now Andy Warhol fans get their first chance to own a photographic diary of his circle in the year 1964-65.' (British Vogue)

'What you get is what you would expect: an inimitable record of a cultural icon in the process of inventing himself ... Text supplier David Dalton (himself a picture subject) suggests that Warhol didn't want the project published because he appeared more lively and spontaneous than his bland-faced self-iconising would permit; whatever the reason, we're lucky to have got them now.' (Guardian)

About the Author

David McCabe was born in 1940 in Leicester, England, where he studied Graphic Design and Photography. While in art school, he won an international photo competition sponsored by the magazine Practical Photography and was hired by the Mayflower photo studio in London. In 1960, he moved to New York, where he first worked as an assistant and studied under Alexey Brodovitch, Henry Wolf and Melvin Sokolsky. He received his first assignment with Condé Nast in 1963, and was contacted by Andy Warhol the following year. McCabe's photographs have been published in various magazines including Life, Harper's Bazaar, Mademoiselle, W, French Elle, French Vogue and The Times. A selection of his photographs of Andy Warhol have recently been exhibited in many museums around the world.

David Dalton was a founding editor of Rolling Stone magazine and is the author of over ten fiction and non-fiction books, including James Dean: The Mutant King and El Sid: Saint Vicious. As teenagers he and his sister Sarah were Andy Warhol's first assistants. It is he who designed - with Warhol himself in 1964 - the 'Fab' issue of the Aspen magazine.

Everything you ever needed to know about one of twentieth-century most influential artist in one book. It is a very easy read as one is reading the photo captions but the book also explores Andy Warhol 's strive for fame. It shows the pop art era for what it really was, shallow but hugely observant of everyday objects and images.
