From School Library Journal
Grade 4-7–Large color reproductions expose readers to a wide variety of art, from the best-known paintings of the 14th and 15th centuries to contemporary photographs and wrap art. European, Asian, and American art is included in the more than 30 discussed works. Illustrations are arranged to fill single pages, spreads, and small squares. The text, at times calligraphic, becomes part of the art as it invites viewers to take more than a cursory look. Questions encourage readers to observe details, while statements of opinion help to provoke new thoughts and elicit emotional responses to the pieces. Because the book is not arranged by chronology, medium, or style, readers have the option to skip around, to pick and choose the works to study–much like visiting favorite paintings in a museum.

Book Description
The man who enshrined a hoover vacuume and a basketball, who created a life-sized polychromed wood replica of Michael Jackson and his pet chimp Bubbles, who transfered his sex life with Italian porn star wife Ilona Staller onto canvas, and who made a monumental topiary sculpture in the shape of a puppy, is back. After a seven-year hiatus from the public eye, bad boy Jeff Koons returns in this comprehensive and overdue survey of his work of the past five years. Three elaborate, highly-produced series are presented, including the joyously effusive "Celebration," an ambitious body of 16 photo-realist paintings and 20 stainless steel sculptures that draw upon the symbols and objects associated with the observance of life's festive rituals. Essays by Eckard Schneider and Alison Gingeras. 9.5 x 11 in. 40 color illustrations...

Bregory Garry --- Flaunt
... Cliffs Notes to his career.

Book Description
The man who enshrined a Hoover vacuum cleaner, who suspended a basketball in a fish tank half filled with water, who created a life-size polychromed wooden replica of Michael Jackson and his pet chimp Bubbles, who transferred his sex life with his then-wife, Italian porn star Ilona Staller (aka Cicciolina), onto canvas, and who made a monumental topiary sculpture in the shape of a puppy, is here given a mini-retrospective in the form of a book. Jeff Koons: Pictures 1980-2002 focuses primarily on the formation and development of Koons's paintings, but, given that he considers his early sculptures to be "three-dimensional paintings," this limit need hardly be considered medium-restrictive. Thomas Kellein's extended...

From Library Journal
Avid art collectors and philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad have assembled a diverse collection of work from big names in contemporary art, as revealed by this book, published in conjunction with a Los Angeles County Museum of Art exhibition drawn from their collections. An interview with the Broads, disclosing their approach to collecting for both investment and edification, is followed by four contextual essays by prominent curators and academics, each punctuated by extensive sections of color plates. Since the Broads collected widely in the work of Cy Twombly, Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Anselm Kiefer, and many others, the writers are able to outline several strains of recent art history without straying from the collection at hand. But the essays are incidental in...

From Publishers Weekly
In Utah, first cousins can marry, but only after they're 65 years old. Training a bear to wrestle is a felony in Alabama. In Delaware it's illegal to sell perfume as a drink. Seventeen-year-olds Jeff Koon and Andy Powell collect these and other wacky laws in You May Not Tie an Alligator to a Fire Hydrant: 101 Real Dumb Laws. Some of the laws show compassion (in Florida's Jupiter Colony Inlet, you can't launch missiles at birds), while others are just plain bizarre (in Oklahoma, hamburgers purchased on Sunday can only be eaten in the restaurant).Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

Book Description
Within Warhol's Death and Disaster series, the so-called Car Crashes comprise the most numerous and diverse set of images. As Gerard Malanga writes in his accompanying essay, "We would return to this silkscreen again and again for several months; in effect, the first painting repeated many times over, this initiating Andy's serial imagery on separate identically shaped canvases, and anticipating the Flower paintings to come." The book also includes a contemporary interview between Malanga and Jeff Koons as well as a reprint of an interview between Malanga and Warhol from 1963. When we were making the 5 Deaths paintings, with the car upside down and the people underneath, Andy asked, "Are they still alive?" as if the accident had actually occurred in front of us. --Gerard Malanga Introduction by Gerard...

Book Description

"A wonderfully playful assemblage of language, rhythmic and hypnotic, comic and profound. It travels from the nightclub to the bedroom to the artist's studio to the street and beyond."-Gordon Andersen, Actors Touring Company

Inspired by the title artist, without actually using him as a character, Jeff Koons is a puzzling and enticingly experimental play from a celebrated German writer.

Happy Kitty Bunny Pony: A Saccharine Mouthful of Super Cute
Charles S. Anderson Design Company
0810992000
April 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
From turn-of-the-century novelties and Depression-era distraction, through wartime comfort, to Hello Kitty and Jeff Koons, cuteness has thrived in the fertile soil of American modern-age media and pop culture. What is it about fluffy bunnies with bows, baby ducks splashing in puddles, kittens snuggled in baskets, and little lambs on their way to school? Happy Kitty Bunny Pony celebrates America's "cult of the cute" in all its campy, kitschy, ironic glory.

With more than 200 images from the print and advertising archives of the Charles S. Anderson Design Company, this collection is an amazingly rich testament to America's fascination with cute things. The hilarious commentary by Mystery Science Theater 3000 host Mike Nelson, spiked with fun and curious facts, bits of sarcasm, and dry and not-so-dry wit, is as...

Book Description
America's famous teenage stalkers of stupidity are back! From the authors of You May Not Tie an Alligator to a Fire Hydrant, here is a collection of 101 of the dumbest product warnings you'll ever see. The infamous 1994 McDonald's hot coffee lawsuit has spawned a veritable industry of "hot" warnings, from Kellogg's Pop-Tarts admonition that "[i]f pastry is overheated, frosting/filling can become extremely hot and could cause burns" to the Black Cat Fireworks label: "Caution: flammable. Do not put in mouth." If, on the other hand, you manage to escape the heat with a trip to the beach, be warned that a twenty-inch beach ball is "NOT a lifesaving device." Kids (and maybe even parents) might be forgiven, however, for thinking that Mr. Bubbles Body Wash for Kids of All Ages would be okay to use if they missed the warning...

Book Description
"Blonde bombshell," "It Girl," "uber-babe" -- Pamela Anderson, star of tv series Baywatch and celebrated Playboy playmate, mesmerized the world with a doll's face, pinup figure, sexy tattoos and a man-eating smile. In a tradition that extends from Jean Harlow through Brigette Bardot to Madonna, Pam is the sex goddess of the 21st century. Sante D'Orazio, America's most sought-after celebrity photographer, photographed Pamela Anderson in a one-day session in the Fall of 2000 on the terrace of a mansion in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles. His images, for the first time published in Pam: American Icon, are both a visual study on the phenomenon of the blonde and a seductive collection of erotica.
