Ed Ruscha, They Called Her Styrene, Etc

'This book reproduces close to 600 'word' artworks by Ruscha, all of which characterise his artistic scope and identity. Assembled together in the form of a thick block, making the book and art 'object' in itself, these images become a sort of novel without an obvious plot: a series of words with no narrative but, rather, with a life of their own. Some of the works consist of only one word - greatmudtrust - and others of short combinations or phrases, such as Indeed I doShe Sure Knew Her DevotionalsYour Polyester PeopleThat Housing Tract is Only Texture, and, of course, They Called Her Styrene.'

hardback, 123 x 185 mm, 580 pp, 575 illustrations
