Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) was one of the most innovative and irreverent British artists of the 20th century. Considered the `godfather of Pop Art', his powerful collages, sculptures and prints challenged mid-century British modernism by drawing on mass culture, science fiction and industrial design.

Accompanying the first major exhibition of Paolozzi's art since 1975, this publication presents a fresh and comprehensive overview of his work from the 1940s to the 1990s, highlighting not only his unique position as one of Britain's most dynamic, versatile and pugilistic artists, but also the relevance of his work today.

As well as entries on more than 100 works and a full bibliography, the book presents new approaches to Paolozzi by critics Hal Foster and Jon Wood, and by the contemporary Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball; new research and comment by Beth Williamson, Lisa Maddigan Newby and Dawn Ades; a discussion on Paolozzi's public sculpture with Turner Prize winners Assemble; and a reprint of a brilliant 1971 conversation between Paolozzi and the novelist J.G. Ballard.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The artist's relevance to our disruptive digital age shines through.... a substantial catalogue.--Simon Martin "The Art Newspaper "
Paolozzi effectively invented pop art, collaging brash consumer imagery from US magazines.... an excellent introduction to a fascinating, yet oddly inscrutable figure.--Mark Hudson "The Telegraph "
The cataloge...is superb.--Laura Freeman "The Spectator "
... this is an essential monograph, especially for libraries, full of fascinating new research about a prodigious artist whose full range is still being measured.--M. Kasper "Rain Taxi Review of Books "
