Item description for Paul Ruscha's Full Moon by Paul Ruscha...

Paul Ruscha's home is a monument to the compulsions of collecting. He has been amassing everything from appliances to office supplies since he was a child: typewriters, toasters, hair dryers, cameras, cocktail shakers, coffee makers, old pens, baseball caps, odd pieces of wood, and the press-apply stickers that adorn every inch of the cabinets in his overcrowded kitchen. His numbered paper inspection slips from the pockets of new items of clothing go back to the dawn of numbered paper inspection slips. And because he has spent the last 20 years working as his artist-brother Edwardis in-house studio photographer and documentarian, the paintings, sculpture and objects mixed in with all of this ephemera are significant pieces of twentieth century art. Paul Ruscha's Full Moon is an incomplete and imprecise inventory of an eclectic, well-loved treasure-trove. Texts explicate the nature of Ruscha's attachment to various items, and recall the artists whose work is included.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paul Ruscha's Full Moon?

Paul Ruscha's Full Life  May 13, 2006
I was charmed by this well written, entertaining book. I think you will be too.

Created as a pictorial companion to Paul's Full Moon art exhibit at Pharmaka Gallery in Los Angeles, it catalogs many of the items in the show and introduces us to a selection of the artists (friends all) who contributed them.

It's also a colorful memoir from a member of the influential California art scene - an intelligent, multi-talented bon vivant. Paul loves living - and he especially loves ART and those inventive souls who interpret it. Since his favorite people collection expands as rapidly as his objects, it's lucky for us he keeps a good diary.

We get an informal biography of each chapter's subject, but the real star of these chronicles is Paul himself who describes his adventures and relationships and observations in a cheerful, candid style that feels like he's chatting with an old pal. His world is glamorous, demanding, complex and he enjoys it all. Paul is exactly the right person to be living his life. Happily, he believes in sharing.

This handsomely produced volume is a pleasure to read. My only disappointment is that it eventually came to an end.
