ON&BY Andy Warhol is the third in the unique series of anthologies which collects important key writings by and on the most significant artists in contemporary culture.
‘Williams has collected what seems like every word ever written about or uttered by the most influential artist of our time to produce a verbal collage portrait that is bold, revealing, multi-dimensional and original.’
