Summary
"While the work of Duane Michals has always been personal, ABCDuane is the first book to act as a visual memoir by this living legend. Duane Michals is the foremost visual storyteller of our time, and in ABCDuane, he wends through his own creative and biographical narrative in depth. The alphabet explodes into a mythopoeic system in the artist's hands, careening through the ideas, artists, and themes that obsess him. The book is heavily illustrated not only with Michals's own works--including rarely seen and never-before-published portraits, painted tintypes, and color pieces--but also with pieces from his private art collection, donated to the Carnegie Museum of Art. Whether a portrait of Eugene Atget by Berenice Abbott, a collage by Joseph Cornell, or an etching by Manet, the works of these masters sit side by side with Michals's inspired images, further revealing the artist's creative process. Funny, intimate, and unguarded, ABCDuane is the perfect primer and creative autobiography of this beloved artist"--
