Evan Hecox: Urban Abstract

I’m wary of buying stuff online. I like to feel the object, flip through the book, try on the shoes before I lay out my hard-earned. The lure of a book of Evan Hecox’s art was too much, though, and despite my fears of it being a half-arsed print job, I clicked “Buy”.

I needn’t have worried. This 160-page book is well built with a thick hardcover, great binding, quality printing and clean design, has an educational intro with shots of Evan’s studio, and depicts a large proportion of the man’s fine art work, sectioned out into his various methods and media—plates, linocuts, skateboard decks and whatnot.

If you like Hecox’s art, you’d do well to take the plunge and click this onto your coffee table. I’m glad I did.
