Andy Warhol: Polaroids

TASCHEN Library at The Joule staffer Daniel Casey shares his current must-read (although he really hates playing favorites). 

My latest TASCHEN pick is what I consider a TASCHEN fan must-have. Andy Warhol: Polaroids is unlike any other Warhol art book. It is an insight into Warhol’s (celebrity-filled) social life and the era which the artist chronicled.  This raw collection of polaroids

provides access into Warhol’s life via an unedited lens.  It’s no wonder why these photos have been described as the true first Instagram account. Flipping through the pages, you’ll be in awe of the endless influential icons that mingled with Warhol. Created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this TASCHEN book is more than a beautiful photo collection. It’s a historical documentation of those that have shaped and inspired numerous creative industries. —Daniel Casey
