Abbeville Press is releasing Carter Ratcliff ‘s seminal book on the artist, Andy Warhol, as an eBook for the iPad.
AppNewser has more: “The $9.99 digital book (which bears the same name as the print book) has been reformatted from the original text into an interactive experience filled with analysis on Warhol’s work. Abbeville Press boasts that the digital book is ‘the first monograph on the quintessential Pop artist to be made available in digital form.'”
The digital book includes more than a hundred representations of Warhol’s works in full color including drawings, paintings and prints from his early days until the end of his career. It also includes artists statements and commentary on the works. The release is timed with the 50th anniversary of Warhol’s career, which is also being celebrated in a show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
