About the book:
The most comprehensive monograph to date on the British artist and writer, loved for his witty book-cover-inspired canvases, now updated with 40 of his latest works.
Harland Miller's creativity as both artist and writer culminates in his iconic paintings of battered book covers with cleverly invented titles. Initially appropriating the classic Penguin paperback, before devising his own unique designs, Miller combines aspects of pop art, abstraction, and figurative painting to create highly coveted artworks. The monograph included in this edition covers nearly 20 years of his paintings, and features specially commissioned essays by eminent art writers exploring all aspects of his practice.
Yorkshire-born Harland Miller has exhibited at ICA, White Cube, and Royal Academy in London; BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead; and Kunsthalle, Mannheim, and Blain Southern, Berlin.
