The Sordid Past of Steven Heller

By Alissa Walker Comment


We promised our self-proclaimed Steven Heller Week would deliver, but you won’t believe today’s final installment. Or shall we say…climax?

Before he became our angelic herald of design, Heller was the art director of not one but two sex reviews! He did some of this work as a minor! He drew a pornographic comic strip! He was thrown in jail with prostitutes! And he admits all of this (even expounds a bit) in his review of Screw editor Al Goldstein’s autobiography in today’s NYT Book Review.

Want to hear more dirty secrets? Heller’s got ‘em in this podcast. We told you it was good.
