Still, the book is chiefly about Johns's output of the 1950s and early 1960s. The coverage of this period takes up the first 52 pages, or roughly 3½ of her book's 5 chapters. Which means that the discussion of Johns's work produced over 1967-2001 is compressed: the discussion of these late decades speeds along, cramming in information. So the reader needs to turn to specialist books and exhibition catalogues for that material.
Nevertheless, as an introduction for the novice or student, this is a fine work (and a bargain at its affordable price, too).
I would recommend this book, especially if you are interested in art.
