DESPERATELY SEEKING WARHOL

A brilliant new look at the amazing world of Andy Warhol, through all the places he loved hanging out in. Originally from Pittsburgh Andy became one of the most successful fashion illustrators in NYC, before launching an initially unsuccessful fine art career. Then, suddenly, things took off. Checkout his favourite haunts – from Serendipity Cafe to the Plaza. Explore the outrageous world of the Factory (there wasn't just one – Andy moved it four times), and follow Andy's success to Paris, Rome, Munich, Arizona, Colorado, Tokyo and Tehran. Above all Andy's is a New York story – of the outrageous Mudd Club, Club 57, Studio 54, the Palladium and The Anvil. And take a look inside Andy's private world – not least his vast, elegant townhouse on the Upper East Side. Artist, print-maker, film-maker and above all zeitgeist-maker, Andy is the quintessential 20th Century artist. No one comes close – perhaps why his best pieces now fetch a cool $105 million each. This is another perfect addition to the best-selling Desperately Seeking series – a great gift or self-buy. If you don't have it, you can't flaunt it – so get one!
