Reviews
At once celebratory, serious, and challenging, the collection gracefully offers new points of inquiry for considering an artist whose core questions remain wonderfully unresolved.--Publishers Weekly--

Various Small Books offers a survey of how an artist's body of work can influence art history and contemporary practice. But it is also a perceptive look at how appropriation can evolve into innovation.

--Steven Heller, The New York Times Book Review--

[H]andsome and intriguing.... The whole thing is delicious.

--Dwight Garner, T The New York Times Style Magazine--
