Overspray HC (2008) comic books
1st printing. "Overspray: Riding High with the Kings of California Airbrush Art!" By Norman Hathaway. Overspray is the comprehensive account of an exuberant form of art in the 1970s and the culture that made it famous - airbrushing. Inspired equally by surf graphics and psychedelia, a generation of young artists embraced the optimism of the Los Angeles art scene and combined it with the slick, manicured surfaces of Hollywood. Suddenly, every record cover looked shiny, every pair of lips was high gloss, every palm tree glistened, and clothes were as loud as the sun. The word was awash in perfectly smooth, vibrantly colored forms. Overspray tells these artists' stories for the first time, reproducing hundreds of images of the best airbrushed work, unseen production art, and ephemera. Overspray will bring that era to vivid, glossy life. Hardcover, 9 1/2-in. x 10 1/2-in., full color. Mature Readers Cover price $50.00.
