Daily Book Graphics #20 / Pop Art

This was (mine now) one of my father's books from his time as an art history Professor at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater in the late 60s and 70s. The book was published in 1968 and reprinted in 1969. I like contemporary books about art movements, they often feature interesting artists that don't end up making it into the official art history. The cover illustration is Clip-o-matic Lips, 1967 by Joe Tilson and the back cover features Jim Dine's 1965 painted cast aluminum piece A Nice Pair of Boots. Design: Gillian Greenwood
