Icons & Idols is a lavish art book by Victor Pross Icons & Idols is based on the idea that actors, politicians, writers, musicians--the famous--constitute a modern mythology. It is an eye-popping visual homage and satire of pop culture.

Oh Wow! You don't have to be an art collector to enjoy this book! It's such a fascinating book of art caricatures of loads of famous icons that also gives a brief overture of what the icon was most famous or best achivements are. I feel Victor Pross has captured the essence of each icon perfectly from the puffy cheeks of Dizzy Gillespie and big lips of Mic Jagger to Leonardo DiCaprio's hair and Jack Nicholson's wicked grin. There's surely a little bit of fun for all to have in it.
