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. How about a stick figure with ears that grow up over the top of his head or a female nude with a crude black pirate patch over one demonic eye? Check, and check 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.
