Indiana (the surname is taken from the artist's native state) is best known for his "Love" designs, which adorn galleries and other public places. This is an eye-catching survey of Indiana's multimedia designs. The pop culture roots of the self-described "people's painter" are emphasized (road signs, pinball machines, the concept of an "American Dream"). Indiana's place among contemporary artists like Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Oldenburg is given rather superficial treatment. In general, the book has the uncritical tone of an exhibit catalog, and the text is pretentious (for which the artist, liberally quoted throughout, bears some responsibility). The illustrations are attractive, but don't justify purchase of the book. Not a necessary addition for most American art collections.
