Review:

"With its beautiful layouts, pin-sharp reproductions and sparkling texts, this enormous 15-pound book is worth every penny of its price... The volume covers both Warhol's numerous accomplishments (in commercial illustration, advertising, painting, film) and his transformation of the New York art scene so thoroughly that even fans will gain new appreciation for Warhol's enduring influence."-Publishers Weekly "A fresh insight into the private world of the ultimate showman."-Sunday Times "What's almost as good as having an Andy Warhol print on your wall? Having a huge coffee-table book stuffed full of hundreds of his photographs."-Sunday Telegraph "Giant-sized genius... A must-have for all you size queens."-Attitude "Giant is as close as most of us will get to owning a piece of pop art."-Dazed & Confused "This Texas-sized tome is actually packed with serious research and writing... The photographs and reproductions are sumptuous for their scale alone. Our favourite element is the accompanying ephemera, from ticket stubs, invoices and party invitations, to personal notes from celebrities such as Diana Vreeland and Halston. Giant is an archive in book form, a now essential addition to the Warhol canon. Just don't try to read it in bed!"-Kultureflash "As big as an old family bible and only marginally less instructive, though you won't find polaroids of drag queens and male nudes in the Good Book."-Scottish Sunday Herald "Sheer visual pageantry."-The Spectator "The book's full-size reproductions and breadth of references draw the reader into the small-print of Warhol's world."-The Daily Telegraph "Highly desirable... A work of art in itself. It's a huge, heavy, beautifully designed object, oozing class and cool from every page... May be the ultimate coffee table book."-Heat "Dazzling."-Elle "Will thrill any Pop Art fan."-RA (Royal Academy of Arts) magazine "A visual feast which can be read or just perused for a fuller appreciation of the artist whose favoured style was 'to get it exactly wrong'."-The Good Book Guide "Truly astonishing... A work of art in itself, the epic portfolio has the wow factor in spades!"-Film Review
