Andy Warhol. The name is known in the art world for bringing us the infamous Campbell's Soup. And for helping to bring the term Pop Art to light.This title tells the reader a back story about Andy, a brief look into his childhood where, at a young age Andy had a natural talent for art, & about his medical condition that made his skin pale, which presented us the Andy we all know.We are told of how Andy got his job at Glamour magazine in New York after graduating from Carnegie Institute of Technology. Having his mother move in with him after the passing of his father; having both his mother & friends help out with projects and creating The Factory.This book is both for adults & children who are already fans of or budding fans of Andy. The text presented is large enough for beginner readers and accomplished ones. A great addition to any Andy library.
