This exhaustive monograph begins with a biographical essay by Interview magazine editor-in-chief Ingrid Sischy that puts his work into context and tells his personal story. Arranged in chronological chapters by work groups, alongside hundreds of large-format images tracing Koons’s career from 1979 to today. Rounding off the book are an extended bibliography and a lavishly illustrated biography. Fans will find in this publication not only a sumptuous book-object, but also the most comprehensive study of the artist’s work ever published. Due out April 2008 suggested retail price 1,000.00 USD. Get some!!
