RAYMOND PETTIBON: A READER. Ed. by Ann Temkin and Hamza Walker. Renaissance Society, University of Chicago, 1998. Organized in association with and published by Philadelphia Museum of Art. Distributed by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, New York. 264 pp. with 57 ills. (one col.). 24 x 17 cm. LC 98-38152 ISBN 0876331207 In English.
Including five critical essays and reproductions of more than 50 drawings produced by Pettibon (b. 1957) from 1981 to 1997, this catalogue features literary pieces by Jonathan Swift, William Blake, Charles Baudelaire, Henry James, Marcel Proust, Samuel Beckett, H.L. Mencken, Mickey Spillane and dozens of other authors whose writings evoke the darkly existential outlook informing the California artist's works, which combine loosely rendered cartoon-like imagery and fragmentary texts to create ironic commentaries on a broad range of cultural, religious and psychosexual themes.
