Andy Warhol (1928-1987) once said that in the future, everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. But his own fame only continues to grow . . . as does his influence on art and culture. This beautifully illustrated biography, which includes over 20 items of facsimile memorabilia, much of it previously unpublished, follows the arc of his rags-to-riches life, from his early years in Depression-era Pittsburgh to his success as an illustrator in New York City in the 1950s to his transformation into a notorious Pop Artist, underground filmmaker, author, publisher, collector, recorder, and iconic celebrity.
