Editorial Reviews

Review

"With a monograph from Skira Rizzoli due out this fall and the Aldrich show at his doorstep KAWS has gotten approval from an art world establishment that he felt would never take his guerrilla act as its own" ~Interview

“The first publication dedicated to the full range of work by subculture hero KAWS, this amazing eponymous monograph highlights a superstar from a new generation of pop artists.” ~Flavorwire

"Rizzoli has amounted a series of very strong titles on and by people from our culture in the last couple of years...today we learned that a book entirely concentrating on the life and career of New York artist Kaws will also be released." ~HighSnobiety.com

"One of the most impressive art book publishers of the moment is New York’s Rizzoli, recent releases have included the Maison Martin Margiela, A-Ron’s Supreme book, Kanye’s “Glow In The Dark” and more, but their latest releases is perhaps the most exciting yet… a retrospective of the career of Kaws." ~SlamHype.com

Format: Hardcover
I got this book because I enjoy KAWS artwork and I feel that it is high time for pop art to acknowledge him. This book does show you some of his famous piece and goes over his story(history) but I am highly disappointed in that fact that they used newspaper. I was expecting luster pages of his art work and you only get about 1/3 of the book in this format. Its even hard at time to look at the details of his artwork due to the newspaper choose. Please use gloves when handling this book because body oil transfers a lot to newspaper print. I dont know why they did this but I am glad that I did not spend over $34 for this. Next time KAWS dont cheat us! Give us the luster pages! We are willing to pay for them!
