Item description for Raymond Pettibon: The Pages Which Contain Truth Are Blank by Andreas Hapkemeyer...

One hundred thirty-six drawings and paintings of Raymond Pettibon, one of the most famous and interesting artists in North America. Pettibon's drawings pitilessly critique contemporary culture, using the aesthetic traditions of comic, pop-art and popular culture. His primary theme is the failure of the 1960s subculture to resist authority and shake up the world. The philosophy behind Pettibon's work is that the murder of Sharon Tate by the Manson cult and the Altamont killing mark the collapse of the highflying hopes and demands of the generation of 1968. His work, full of frightening images, speaks openly of the continuing despair and disgust of a generation. Pettibon is a striking example of an underground artist who now represents of so-called high culture.

Reviews - What do customers think about Raymond Pettibon: The Pages Which Contain Truth Are Blank?

Good Book if you know German  Dec 18, 2007
Big fan of Raymond Pettibone and early 80's American Hardcore music. This book is primarily written in German (or something) and the English that is in it explains practically nothing about the man or that period of his life. If your looking for a book with Raymond Pettibone's art work or story, I recommend; Raymond Pettibone: A Reader and Raymond Pettibone: Whatever It Is You're Looking For, You Won' t Find It Here. It appears that he is a very secluded man and very seldom let's people get to close that want to bring his work to the mainstream. Honestly, I recommend this book for those of you who love Pettibone and don't want to know any of the history. You do the research and find the one for you.
