I walked over to the Morgan Library to join my friends Benedicte, Shirley and Eunice. The exhibition we were interested in was “Warhol By The Book”. We didn’t know what to expect and were surprised and excited by his wonderful book illustrations.

From the Morgan’s website: “Warhol by the Book is the first exhibition in New York devoted solely to Warhol’s career as a book artist. This retrospective features more than 130 objects dating from the artist’s student days, his early years in New York as a commercial artist and self-publisher, and the decades of innovation spanning the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s that solidified Warhol’s standing in the history of modern art. Items on display include the only surviving book project from the 1940s; drawings, screen prints, photographs, self-published books, children’s books, photography books, text-based books, unique books, archival material; and his much-sought-after dust jacket designs.”

We stayed for a long time copying his drawings.

The guards were enjoying themselves watching us.
