Seven Illustrated Books 1952–1959 06Andy Warhol was an illustrator and designer looking for his great chance before he became Andy Warhol, Pop Star, guru, trend hunter and the artist that we all know and admire today.

In his 20s, when nobody knows him, he designed seven books to promote his work and he sent them to friends, clients and influencers to show his talent and professional potential. Now Taschen recovers these books at Seven Illustrated Books 1952–1959. Reuel Golden, editor at Taschen, explains that with this book we can see “the things he became famous for, the strong graphic design and illustration element, the way he plays with classical art references and uses inspiration from everyday life.”

As a designer, I always think about my professional portfolio and this book makes me think about new ways to communicate what I do and how I do. That’s why I find it so inspiring, although Andy Warhol always is inspiring.

Andy Warhol fue un ilustrador y diseñador en busca de su gran oportunidad antes de ser Andy Warhol, la estrella del Pop, el gurú, el cazador de tendencias y el artista que hoy todos conocemos y admiramos.

Cuando Warhol tenía 20 años diseñó siete libros para mostrar su talento y su potencial profesional y los mandó a amigos, clientes e influencers. Ahora Taschen edita un libro que recopila estos volúmenes en Seven Illustrated Books 1952–1959. Reuel Golden, editor en Taschen, explica que en el libro podemos ver “las cosas por las que llegó a ser un artista famoso, su fuerza en diseño gráfico e ilustración, la forma en que juega con referencias artísticas clásicas y cómo se inspira en detalles del día a día.”

Como diseñadora, siempre le doy vueltas a mi portfolio y este libro me hace pensar en nuevas formas de comunicar qué hago y cómo lo hago. Y, por este motivo, lo encuentro tan inspirador aunque en realidad, Andy Warhol siempre es inspirador.
