Synopsis: This double slipcased edition includes both a deluxe-bound, signed edition of "Schenck in the 21st Century" and a deluxe-bound edition of the companion autobiography "The Chronology of Billy Famous."
Bill Schenck is “one of the best-known practitioners of the western pop-art movement―which appeared in the 1960s hard on the heels of American pop’s leading lights like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein,” according to Southwest Art magazine. "Schenck in the 21st Century" is a comprehensive catalog raisonne and biography covering Schenck's paintings, photographs, serigraphs, and the other kinds of trouble he's been in since the turn of the millennium. Written by noted art historian, Amy Abrams, this is the most authoritative source on Schenck's current work and philosophy of life, art, and the way it ought to be.
"The Chronology of Billy Famous" is the wild and zany companion book to "Schenck in the 21st Century." This illustrated chronology, written by Bill Schenck, includes 38 of his new drawings and an epilogue. "The Chronology" is Schenck's first unauthorized autobiography and successfully mystifies the basic facts of how he got to be where he is today.
