Product description

Review

Even the most diehard muso would think twice before suggesting that popular music is art, but with the Velvet Underground it came pretty close... Next month Rizzoli publishes a lush (and mostly previously unseen) visual archive, The Velvet Underground: A New York Art (£35), giving this most influential of bands the artist's monograph treatment. --The Daily Telegraph magazine, Saturday 31 October

...compellingly comprehensive treasure trove
--Mojo, December 2009

Pic of the week: The Velvets! Art! Warhol! Er, Johan Kugelberg's lovingly compiled The Velvet Underground...collates concert posters, live photos, handbills...Most of it is unseen and all of it is exploding plastic inevitably cool.
--The Guardian, 9 November 2009
