Considered a 'West Coast' artist, Ed Ruscha gained attention for his paintings, drawings, and photographic books that centered around his home of Los Angeles. This book is the first ever monograph on Ruscha's work. It looks with discernment and insightful detail at the prolific and many-faceted career of an artist whose work has been variously described as pop, conceptual and surrealist: he is a skilful painter as well as a prominent print-maker, book-maker, and film-maker. The thematic and loosely chronological structure of the book brings to light the diversity and depth of Ruscha's art, while at the same time underlining the continuity and recurrence of themes and ideas within his ever surprising and prolific career.
