I  didn't know much about Pop Art until I read this book and didn't even realised I had been using it in posers I desgned for drama Groups. I found this book interesting and informative and full of fresh ideas. It is certainly a rich colourful book bursting with enthusiasm and novel ideas. I would certainly recommend it to those who know little about Pop Art
