The Autobiography of a SnakeDe (autor) Andy Warhol
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 29 Sep 2016
This is the never-before-published story of a snake trying to make it in the world of sixties high society, strongly suggested to be a stand-in for Warhol himself. The snake s tongue-in-cheek observations as he slithers from adorning Jackie Kennedy s boots to embellishing Coco Chanel s shirt will delight the sophisticated fashion crowd. But the stars of the show are Warhol s whimsical illustrations, revivified with a color scheme inspired by his iconic Pop Art.
Before he achieved his dream of making it big in New York, Andy Warhol worked in advertising for a leather goods company, Fleming-Joffe, alongside Ogden Nash and Piero Fornasetti. It was for Fleming-Joffe that he created these images, held by the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and rarely seen until this deluxe publication. The Autobiography of a Snake is a brilliant portrait of Warhol s obsessions, his talent, and the world he would one day conquer."
