From such painted icons as his Statue of Liberty series and his dreamlike landscapes, to his pulsating graphics and world-famous posters that defined the visual aesthetic of the age of rock and roll, this richly illustrated book finally puts Max in perspective as a leading figure on the contemporary art scene. Compiled with the cooperation of the artist himself, it takes the viewer backstage into the studio and the celebrity studded life of an artist who is himself a celebrity.

This book is a feast for the eyes. The colors are breathtaking and just holding it and looking through it was a great pleasure. It is a very substantial book and from the cover to the quality of the paper and printing I would say it is one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen.
If you love Peter Max and his art work then you will love this book. It includes a brief biography of his life and showcases many images of his paintings. A great coffee table book.
