This book was very educational and informative. I enjoyed the cover as well. Another great art book is called, "The Art Dockuments by author Carlton Davis. This a non-fiction book with a collection of stories about the Los Angeles art gallery in the 1980s, The Art Dock. The Art Dock was a street art gallery in the loading dock of the loft of Carlton Davis. First it was controversial, then it became a community gallery, and one of the highlights of art in LA during the 1984 Olympics. At its end the Art Dock tried to become business with humorous results. http://artdock.net/
