America.

“Everybody has their own America, a fantasy that they think is out there pieced together from scenes in movies and music and lines from books. And you live in your dream America that you’ve custom-made from art and schmaltz and emotions as much as you live in your real one.”


"What's great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good."


— Andy Warhol


I just love big coffee table books. I think they are the ultimate accessory of any living room. They provide as an accent to the main focus of the room, they give insight to the feelings and thoughts of the person belonging to the room, and also add an element of wonder - all key jobs of every perfect accessory.

This coffee table book "America" is Andy Warhol's tribute to America. Beautiful illustrations and commentary by Warhol are contained within this incredible hardcover. I'm on the hunt currently to find this treasure to add to my collection of accessories...
