Ed Ruscha is best known for his painted works, but has produced a number of well received photo books as well. Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass, his eighth book and the first in color, is indicative of his background in pop art with it's bold, graphic photographs on swimming pools in Los Angeles.

If you happen to be in New York this week, and you happen to love Ed Ruscha (as we do here at Juxtapoz), then you are in luck. Assuming you may not have already seen this lovely solo-show by the California-based artist, the exhibition provides a breadth of new and older work from Ruscha, some adhering to his well known use of text and others venturing into more heavily visual works like the acrylic canvas painting Gilded, Marbled, and Foibled.

We have been anticipating the release of Sign Painters, a new book by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon, since we first heard from our friends at New Bohemia Signs (Who are featured) of its production in 2010. Documenting many of the older and emerging hand-lettering fiends, this book accurately displays the beauty and passion of the craft. The book notes and we have seen for ourselves, that there has been a resurgence in traditional sign painting.

A rite of passage in life is to read Jack Kerouac's seminal 1957 novel, On the Road. It is one of the last great American adventure stories. Ed Ruscha seems to feel the same way. Currently on exhibit at UCLA's HAMMER Museum, Ruscha has created an entirely new body of paintings and drawings that take their inspiration from passages in Kerouac’s novel.
