Product Description


'Tis not Vainglory, but the encouragement of Florists (Herbalists) that I have in view.'- The Dutch Gardener, Henry Van Oosten, 1703

About the Author

Shag lives in Southern California. A live theatrical dance production based on his artwork, "Shag With a Twist", is currently running nightly at the Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Marine biologist Jeanne Rose grew up the skeptical daughter of an herb-loving French-Canadian/Puerto Rican family. Graduate studies in Hawaii and California introduced her to historical and contemporary herb use. A terrible car accident provided the time and space for Jeanne to further her research and write this book. She now runs New Age Creations and the Institute of Aromatic Studies.

HASH(0xa25de69c) out of 5 stars wonderviews 14 July 2003
By Brian Wallace (Co-author of It's Not Your Hair) - Published on
Format: Paperback
The delightful work represented by Shag is such a crowd pleaser, appealing to the avant garde and yuppies alike. His anthropomorphic playfulness and detail for amusement, absurdity and child-like wonderment are addictive.
Tons of fun in this book!

HASH(0xa25de804) out of 5 stars SHAG-tastic!!! 5 Jan. 2002
By ericgp - Published on
Format: Paperback
Absolutely fabulous images!!! I have been a fan of SHAG's artwork for a few years. This is the second book that I own displaying his artwork, with the first one being Supersonic Swingers (2000). I currently have "Shag Party: Cocktails and Appetizers to Seduce and Entertain" on order with AMAZON. I anxiously await its arrival. It's great to have access to so many of his incredible works without having to spend thousands of dollars on an original piece, although... if I had it ($) to spend on artwork, I'd have a room full!!!

HASH(0x97efdc84) out of 5 stars Shag milestone 14 Mar. 2006
By Otto vonstroheim - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for cataloging the career of Shag. A new book is out by Billy Shire that delves deeper but this book was first and draws a significant line in the sand.

I have followed Shag's career from before it was a fine art career and continue to follow it (see the catalogs from the shows I curated featuring Shag pieces: Tiki Art Now! and Tiki Art Two) and I think this book is a great starting point for all new Shag fans as well as a must have for serious, longstanding Shag fans.

HASH(0x97e4d528) out of 5 stars Breakthrough Illustrator SHAG!! 5 April 2005
By Gotham Girl18 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Of course, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit envious of how this illustrator creates such great masterpieces. Shag, aka Josh Agle, has perplexed the minds of many who often wonder how such simplistic paintings attract such a devoted fanbase. Stars such as Whoopi Goldberg have collected his work, making simple prints skyrocket to unobtainable prices. This book showcases some of Shag's work, and the pictures are of the highest quality.

Having had the pleasure of actually meeting Shag at an art gallery in Long Beach, I've noticed that he bears a startling resemblance to the men he includes in his paintings. Although it was not his attention to do so, I thought it was rather interesting.

Certainly a good picture book for anyone seeking a minute library of his vast works, Shag is definetely not an artist to be imitated.
HASH(0xa2c78af8) out of 5 stars I love the art of SHAG! 18 Mar. 2012
By S.M. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Art of Shag:Bottomless Cocktail is another great addition to my collection. I first discovered SHAG's work when he produced the Pink Panther's 25th birthday collection; I have loved his work ever since. Amazon has a good variety of books and postcards on offer and I recommend them very much.SHAG fans will not be disappointed.
