New York Art: The Velvet Underground

Today, I've had my nose burried in The Velvet Underground book, published by Rizzoli. Anyone remotely interested in The Velvet Underground or any of the musicians, artists and performers connected (there sure were a lot) is bound to find this fascinating. It is full of the incredible artwork that went hand-in-hand with the music. It also has more than just a bit of Warhol-based contributions - apart from the peel-off banana record sleeve, I can't say I'm convinced, surely he's the first of a long list of 'art chancers'? Anyway, it's amazing and uh oh...I think I'm obsessed with Nico.
