In Andy: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol, Typex charts the artist's life from his childhood in Pittsburgh to the dizzying heights of his celebrity. In doing so, he reveals a complex and contradictory character - at once cruel and vulnerable, deep and shallow, commercial and avant garde. Divided into ten parts, each designed and drawn to reflect the period, Andy is also a sweeping portrait of the twentieth century, featuring an endless parade of pop culture icons, from Shirley Temple to Madonna, Lou Reed to Salvador Dalí.

Heavy-papered and silver-edged, it's also an extremely handsome package. Here's a look inside.
