Read any Warhol Books?
There are so many Warhol books! About Andy Warhol, The Factory, and His Circle!
I thought we might use our few weeks here in Warhol MOOC for we, the students & staff of Warhol MOOC to crowdsource a list of short book reviews. If you’ve read a book please list your info in the comments below and I’ll add it to this list.

Andy Warhol Treasures by Matt Wrbican and Geralyn Huxley
This is indeed a treasure book. Not only does it delve into Andy Warhol’s past with history on the city of Pittsburgh, his religious upbringing and artistic influences, it is a treasure trove of little bits of facsimiles of what Warhol did and little sneak peeks into his world. For instance, in the section 1950-59 there is a copy of some of his graphic design as well as a facsimile of a newspaper clipping showing an auto accident that he used in his death series. When we get to the 60′s we can look at his passport.
Each decade has a facsimile sample of something he either worked on or something that is a personal item. All this gives you quite the insight into him and it really is like a little treasure hunt.
I received this book as a gift and find that I am often lost in it as I read about him and his friends/cohorts, admiring his work and dreaming about how I can use this inspiration into my own art. A definite recommend for anyone who just loves to have a hands on experience.
