This work consists of an interview with the artist Raymond Pettibon, in which he discusses recurring themes in his work such as baseball and film noir; a survey of the artist's prolific career; an examination of the single strands of Pettibon's oeuvre; and a selection of the artist's writings.

'Apart from the obvious delights of the images...there are essays, interviews, as well as never before published video screenplays, song lyrics and an LSD derived homage to beatnik poetry. Refreshment for body and mind.' (Sleaze Nation) 'The boldest, best-executed and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about.' (Artforum) 'A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists.' (The Sunday Times) 'Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment.' (The Art Book) 'The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art.'
