The Big Book of Pop Culture: A How-to Guide for Young Artists by Hal Niedzviecki starts by defining what Pop Culture is. Pop Culture embraces so much more than just art on paper. It embraces the expressions that declare who we are and what we believe in. This book is a how-to guide for those who want help in the art of expressing their own culture.
The Art Book is just that. A book filled with art and artists. This book is arranged alphabetically by artist and contains images of many famous pieces of art. Each image includes a commentary about the piece and the artist. I'll have to say that I don't always understand the appeal of a piece, but again, that's a matter of opinion.
