Book Description Rizzoli International Publications, New York, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st. Pictorial boards, [96] pages, color illustrations; 28 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. A fine copy of the first printing. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Mrs. Tependris-the eccentric, dramatic, lovable, and awardwinning brainchild of artist Konstantin Kakanias-is seeking to find greater meaning in her life. In doing so, she becomes obsessed with her personal liberation and the art of creation and, as a consequence, makes a foray into the world of contemporary art. This colorful, stylish, and irresistible volume chronicles her journey with great insight and humor. Page after page, Kakanias' whimsical, beautiful art and calligraphy document the couture-wearing Mrs. Tependris' madcap adventures and comments on the work of some forty noteworthy artists in contemporary art. Interspersed throughout are pages that are dedicated to Mrs. Tependris' quest for self-understanding and move the story forward, whether on the phone with a friend or having flashbacks to her time with Andy Warhol at the Factory. Ultimately she discovers that she too is an artist and, in fact, that we are all artists, creators of our own happiness. At once informative, entertaining, and visually stimulating, Mrs. Tependris will delight those with an interest in contemporary art and fashion, while her dramatic adventures and life-affirming story will endear her to readers from all walks of life. / Konstantin Kakanias is a painter whose art has been shown at galleries in New York City, Los Angeles, Paris, Geneva, London, Athens, and Milan. His work on Mrs. Tependris won second prize from the New York Times for International Newspaper Design in 1996 and has also been the subject matter of several of his solo shows.
