STEPHEN SPROUSE: XEROX/ROCK/ART -- DRAWINGS & EPHEMERA, 1970S-1980S. Ed. by Carol McCranie and Javier Magri. Damiani Editore, Bologna, 2015.

Publisher's description: Drawn from an archive comprised of 1,500 separate pieces, including 600 original drawings, color Xeroxes, swatch references and inspiration materials, Stephen Sprouse: Xerox/Rock/Art presents a revelatory look at Sprouse's design work from the mid-1970s through the late 1980s -- a period characterized by the artist/designer's participation in and connection to the glamorous studios of Bill Blass and Halston and his embrace of New York City's edgy East Village/Bowery vibe. The works on paper included here reveal Sprouse's unmistakable energy: his facile and powerful inked lines, his use of the Xerox machine which, in the spirit of Andy Warhol, allowed Stephen to vary gouache color applications. Sprouse's fashion designs and sketches unmistakably capture the era of disco and punk. Inspirational muses represented here include Jackie Onassis, Patty Hearst, Patti Smith and Debbie Harry of Blondie. In 1978, Harry famously wore an off-the-shoulder creation in a concert that signaled Sprouse's public debut and the two star talents collaborated for years (Harry also provides the introduction to this volume).
