ANDY

WARHOL

BOOK

OVERVIEW

The Warhol Book project features a chapter from Andy Warhol’s book, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and Back Again), and creates a visual interpretation of the text involving grid systems. Imagery could also be included to support the grid system and concept overall.

SOLUTION

Because Warhol’s voice in the chapter is very fast paced, random tangents often interrupt his main idea and thoughts. The grid system is meant to work as a sort of puzzle and represent the author’s way of writing. The small column width and seemingly random spacing help add to Warhol’s voice and the emotion in the text. Letters are organized to interrupt the flowing copy, and make up quotations from the text, explaining the concept of the chapter. Images of romantic films are used to support the text and represent what Warhol refers to as “Fantasy Love.”
