Overview

Within this children's coloring book for grown-ups, readers will find 72 messy, funny, sometimes risqué black-and-white line drawings of people, monsters, robots and flowers. Is there a nude, bearded guy with peace symbols for eyes? Sure. A mummy? Yes again.

For lovers of Richard Prince, one of the foremost American artists of the Pictures generation, or for anyone with an off-beat sense of humor, this is a must-have artist's book, produced on the occasion of Prince's 2008 Serpentine Gallery exhibition. As Roberta Smith wrote in her 2007 review of Prince's major mid-career survey at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, "Practically every last American could find something familiar, if usually a bit unsettling, in his work." Adults--and children too.
