'A rich yet eclectic archive... Pettibon is an irreverent satirist and chronicler, who, armed with an observant eye and a steady hand, still remains unafraid to lead us into the darkest corners of the soul.' - Aesthetic

The most comprehensive monograph in print on this provocative artist, who has helped to redefine contemporary art

For over thirty years, Raymond Pettibon (b. 1957) has been chronicling the history, mythology, and culture of America. This career spanning exhibition catalogue accompanying the show at the New Museum includes nearly 700 images, contributions from important figures in the art-historical and cultural fields, and a recent interview with the artist. Beginning with childhood drawings, the book moves through to his mature work, which embraces both high and low culture.

Reviews

'A rich yet eclectic archive... Pettibon is an irreverent satirist and chronicler, who, armed with an observant eye and a steady hand, still remains unafraid to lead us into the darkest corners of the soul' - Aesthetica

'Star-studded catalogue' - Artforum

'Whether you already know a lot about the work of Raymond Pettibon, or whether you are coming to it fresh, this weighty tome is almost certain to include information and, more importantly, pictures, that you have never seen before... Fans will also appreciate the inclusion of his childhood drawings and unusual ephemera' - Illustration 

'Big reproductions of the work are punctuated by essays and an articulate interview ('Speaking in tongues') in which Pettibon states: "My works don't claim to have an absolute veracity, and that's perhaps the biggest difference between political cartoons and my work. My work is not wrapped up in a punch line' - Eye Magazine
