New from Rizzoli books, The Velvet Underground: A New York Art (edited by Johan Kugelberg) collects together a wealth of early photography of the band, alongside a wonderful archive of posters and flyers.
The Velvet Underground's association with Andy Warhol is well documented; perhaps what is less well known is the art that was actually made to promote the band's gigs and albums during the mid-to-late 60s. A new book documents the rise of their decidedly New York art.
