Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In its 30-year history, Rolling Stone (RS) magazine has never used stock illustrationsDgeneric, on-demand drawings that many newspapers and magazines use not only to cut costs but also to avoid offending readers. Art, as Rolling Stone Press Editor Holly George-Warren writes in the introduction, scares people, but luckily RS has an audience that expects a little hellfire. Thus Charles Burns's Tide-detergent box cameo of Little Richard, which humorously follows John Collier's painting of an aghast-looking Frank SinatraDit's as if the original bobby sox dream is anticipating the Beatles-led degeneration to come. In all, award-winning RS art director Woodward chose over 200 striking pieces from almost 100 artists, including Ralph Steadman, Robert Risko, and Al Hirschfeld as well as younger artists like Green & Read. Many of them contributed mini-autobiographies and anecdotes that make the art that much more fun to look at. For instance, here is Steadman on the genesis of his Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas illustrations: "The sequence of events that [led] to my doing the thing was like being sick. I was throwing up, and the throw-up was in fact in the drawings." An excellent addition to popular illustration collections.DHeather McCormack, "Library Journal"

Format: Hardcover
This book has everyone from Elvis to Marilyn Manson included. The illustrations in this book are phenomenal. It is a pretty large book, all pictures for all ages. It is the perfect gift book to anyone who has lived in the 70's, 80's or 90's. I have a copy sitting on my coffee table and everyone who comes over picks it up and cannot put it down until they have seen every picture. :-)

Format: Hardcover
I don't know if Rolling Stone didn't use any art in their early days, or if the editors of this book just figured that they had to concentrate on appealing to their contemporary audience. Anyway, these very entertaining caricatures are mostly from the late Eighties through the Nineties. Risko and Burke account for a large percentage of the total. Risko especially is good, practically the second coming of Miguel Covarrubias. There's too much Madonna and not enough Sixties, but overall this is a fine compilation.
