Raymond Pettibon: A Reader / Pettibon, Raymond ; Borges J ; Mallarme S ; Beckett S ; Temkin A ; Blake W ; Sterne L ; Baudelaire C ; Wittgenstein L., 1998

Identifier: CC-32077-33612
Scope and Contents

This book consists of 72 essays or partial essays of established writers, poets and philosphers. Also included are five texts relating to perspectives of Pettibon by contemporary writers and critics. Pettibon's drawings that are dispersed throughout the texts, are described as "disjunctive, and all inclusive...His initial style relied on the carefully acquired tricks and conventions of cartoon illustration...Pettibon's genius rests on the mysterious alchemy of image and text that his drawings effect. His is a poetry that defies verbal of visual categories, but relies on effacing th boundaries of each." Walter Benjamin contributed an essay, "Unpacking My Library; A Talk about Book Collecting." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
