2009 LPB BOOKLIST

With the New Year vastly approaching there's a few books on my To-Do list that are an absolute must for the new & improved 2009 moi! Enjoy... Patent leather Dictionary,
I plan to define style & my vocabulary with this stunning leather-covered Dictionary
Learning has never been so chic!
For the first time, this book provides a visual history of Dalí’s illustrious life & career after 1940. One of the most widely recognized and controversial artists of the 20th century, Salvador Dalí has so many complex layers to his enigma and finally there's a book that explores his later under appreciated work. A must read for lovers of all things Dalí!

To commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of Richard Hamilton’s legendary letter “Pop Art Is.” Yale University Press published a magnum opus volume celebrating Hamilton himself as well as the works of more than forty artists from his own generation of Pop artists (Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and Andy Warhol) and from artists of subsequent generations who have contributed to the development and dissemination of Pop Art (Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Mike Kelley, Damien Hirst, and others). This tome is truly a treasure!



This intellectually compelling study of Angels in the Judeo-Christian tradition explores Angels, both good and evil and it's relation to the divine-human experience through history. No matter your belief system you will enjoy this apologia for Christian ideology.
