Synopsis: Raymond Pettibon is famed for the breadth and depth of his reading: his art draws on it (excuse pun) at every turn. This anthology of Pettibon's favorite authors assembles an eclectic mix, from Charles Baudelaire to Borges, and Charles Manson to Mickey Spillane. Pettibon's choice of literary resources opens up interesting angles on his work, and his transformation of those resources is fascinating. "There is something in my storyteller's art that wants to put the reader and the writer on equal footing in the role of the creator," Pettibon says; the Pettibon Reader assists his fans in that endeavor.
