"Harland Miller is known as the creator of figurative paintings and works on paper, many of which depict the iconic designs of Penguin paperback books and bear the artist's name as author, with the fictitious title of each being wittily deadpan, punkish and aphoristic. Miller began making paintings according to this template during the 1990s, establishing a visual language that was confrontational, compelling and could draw the viewer into an immediate, entertaining and quick-fire relationship with each work." (Michael Bracewell).
Profusely illustrated with color reproductions of Miller's work throughout, including one gatefold and three folding plates. Contains color-illustrated chronology, author biographies, photo credits and index at rear. Binding lightly rubbed. Interior in fine condition. Very good to fine condition. Item #51865
