About this Item

NEW BOOK and DJ, with Mylar protection; price-clipped. Johns' prints are all quite arresting, and this handsome volume reproduces them in such a way that one feels she has actually been to a gallery opening. The book is a nice almost-square, and the overall subject will delight both the art lover and the book lover. Highly recommended. Bookseller Inventory # 100112

From Library Journal:

This fine exhibition catalog goes far toward providing an understandable explication of Johns's complex graphic techniques and difficult imagery. Johns began printmaking in 1960 and has since become one of the absolute masters of the 20th-century print. Many of his prints replicate his paintings as he experiments with the potentials and insights that another medium provides through new techniques and textures. Below Castleman's text run thought-provoking excerpts from interviews with Johns and from his writings. The color illustrations are good, although the subtleties of texture are nearly impossible to convey, and the black-and white illustrations are a bit muddy. Recommended for all collections of contemporary or graphic art. Lynell A. Morr, John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art Lib., Sarasota, Fla.
