At once celebratory, serious, and challenging, the collection gracefully offers new points of inquiry for considering an artist whose core questions remain wonderfully unresolved.(Publishers Weekly)
Various Small Books offers a survey of how an artist's body of work can influence art history and contemporary practice. But it is also a perceptive look at how appropriation can evolve into innovation.(Steven Heller New York Times Book Review)
More important, the book covers a lot of historical ground, taking that tectonic year 1989 as its starting point and using the explosion of international biennials and triennials for an art-world map utterly different from the one that existed a generation or two ago.(T The New York Times Style Magazine)

and descriptions are very helpful and the artists insights into their creative processes is enlightening. It is a collectible catalogue
and an artist book in itself.
I can recall when his books were remaindered and now they are like gold bars.
It has been amusing and edifying to watch a whole generation of artists "respond" to Ruscha, and this book does a good job of summarizing, although an e-database would do better, as new books come out weekly now. I got one today!
