A must- have for Warhol fans and any pop culture enthusiast, it is now accessible to all, in this slightly smaller (but still quite massive) edition, and at this amazing new price. 8 3/4" by 11 3/8", 1400 color illustrations, 600 b&w illustrations."

RUSSIAN CRIMINAL TATTOO ENCYCLOPAEDIA VOL. 3 (HARDCOVER)
"This final volume of previously unpublished drawings and photographs completes the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia trilogy. Danzig Baldaev's unparallelled ethnographic achievement, documenting more than 3,000 tattoo drawings, was made during a lifetime working as a prison guard. His recording of this esoteric world was reported to the KGB, who unexpectedly supported him, realizing the importance of being able to establish facts about convicts by reading the images on their bodies. The motifs depicted represent the uncensored lives of the criminal classes, ranging from violence and pornography to politics and alcohol."
AND THE HIPPOS WERE BOILED IN THEIR TANKS (HARDCOVER)
"The legendary unpublished collaboration between William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac: a hard-boiled crime novel about a shocking murder at the dawn of the Beat Generation. Written when the writers were far from famous, And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks is an incomparable artifact from the early days of the Beats, a fascinating piece of American literary history, and a remarkable window into the personal lives of two hugely influential writers at the very beginning of their careers. It is also an engaging novel, a hypnotic descent into lust and obsession, drugs and alcohol, art and outsized dreams."
