About the book

The most comprehensive monograph to date on the British artist and writer loved for his witty book-cover-inspired canvases, now updated with forty of his latest works.

Harland Miller's creativity as both artist and writer culminates in his iconic paintings of battered book covers with cleverly invented titles. Initially appropriating the classic Penguin paperback before devising his own unique designs, Miller combines aspects of pop art, abstraction, and figurative painting to create highly coveted artworks that have won him a cult following.

This monograph covers nearly twenty years of his paintings, and features specially commissioned essays by eminent art writers exploring different aspects of his practice and has been updated with forty of his latest works.
