Abstract:

This book, "published under the aegis of Andy Warhol, [is a] quintessential photobook [a] cornucopia of photographic imagery in which found photographs, snap-shots, photographs by Warhol's associates, photographic reproductions of his 'paintings' (themselves self-screened photographs) and other kinds of imagery are collaged to talk about one basic subject--the gargantuan ego and artistic talent of Andy Warhol. Index (Book) is one of the most important and exuberant Pop art objects ever published. From its holographic bubble-wrap cover to the various pop-ups and 'gifts'--the castle, the red accordion, the balloon (nearly always found perished nowadays, or stuck to the pages)--to the stream-of-consciousness photographs by such artists as Billy Name and Nat Finkelstein, it is also one of the ultimate photobooks-as-objects. It is, in addition, the primary Factory photo album, one of the most authoritative biographies of Warhol and a supreme example of the diaristic photographic mode before there was a considered diaristic mode."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004.
