The authors of two new books on Pop Art, Catharina Manchanda and Thomas Crow, take a long and wide view of the phenomenon, including the decades before and after its 1960s heyday. Together they look at the continuing vitality of Pop in recent art. Crow discusses its deep roots in the revival of folk art and music, as well as the innovative graphic design that preceded and paralleled its success; Manchanda considers the ways consumer display and a fascination with celebrity culture have shaped artistic positions in recent years. Artists Milton Glaser, Josephine Meckseper, and Gary Panter join the discussion.
