Now back in print, A Coloring Book: Drawings by Andy Warhol (1961/2011) will amuse and charm a new audience with its delightfully carefree menagerie. Not long after arriving in New York City in 1953, a young artist named Andy Warhol began to make his way in the world of commercial illustration. In the book’s introduction, Arthur Edelman, his former employer, recalls the first time he met Warhol: "In a hallway of the Empire State Building, outside a shoe manufacturer's office, stood a young man with Jackson Pollock shoes, a rumpled black suit, a portfolio and a shock of white hair." Over several years, the Edelmans and Warhol worked closely together. Their relationship culminated in a coloring book that could only have come from the mind of Warhol, created especially for clients’ children for Christmas in 1961 and somewhat of a cause célèbre when it was published in 1990. Reissued by W.W. Norton & Company in September 2011.
