Here is another thing that caught my attention a couple of weeks ago. In about four weeks Taschen, in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation will publish a great looking book titled Andy Warhol: Polaroids 1958-1987. It looks pretty awsome and there are a couple of photos that are familiar to collectors of the record covers, Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Liza Minelli, the Sticky Fingers jeans and Ultra Violet are all there. The Ultra Violet shot is interesting to me because i had not seen it before, the only one i’ve seen previously is the one on the back cover of the album. I have no idea if this is a “new” one or if i should just blame ignorance. The book will feature more than a hundred polaroids and supposedly many that have never been seen before. Other people have already written about this book in a better way and with more details than i ever could so i’ll just drop some links below.
It’s currently available for preorder at Amazon for about $50, i haven’t ordered a copy yet beacause i’m waiting to hear back from local dealers if they will get it. One way or another i’ll get a hold of it though, looks great!
