About this title

Synopsis:

Impossible to categorize, moving easily between the literary, art and musical worlds, always unpredictable and impassioned, idiosyncratic musician and artist Patti Smith here presents an impressive body of visual art, mostly works on paper. Bringing together approximately 60 works spanning the past 30 years, Strange Messenger collects early pieces as well as new ones inspired by the September 11, 2001, bombing of the World Trade Center, in which Smith expresses her views about violence, religion, war and intolerance. This book marks the first occasion that Smith's drawings have been brought together in a single volume, as well as the first publication of most of the included works.

About the Author:

Born in Chicago and raised in Woodbury, New Jersey, just across the state line from Philadelphia, Patti Smith, unable to find her place in high school society, took refuge in Bob Dylan, James Brown, the Rolling Stones, and the images of Rimbaud. Dropping out of Glassboro State Teacher's College, she headed for New York, where she met and moved in with an art student named Robert Mapplethorpe. In 1975 she released her celebrated debut album, Horses. The rest is rock 'n' roll history.
