Price: USD$100.00

The most comprehensive monograph to date on the British artist and writer loved for his witty book-cover-inspired canvases

Harland Miller's creativity as both artist and novelist 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 that have won him a cult following.

This monograph covers nearly 20 years of his paintings, and features newly commissioned essays by eminent art writers exploring different aspects of his practice. It includes an illustrated chronology with photographs and ephemera from the artist's personal archive.

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.
