Published in conjunction with KAWS' first museum retrospective at the Aldrich Contemporary, this book neatly covers the New Jersey-born artist's career output. While it is awesome simply as a monograph, the reason to add KAWS to your collection is to have a full overview of the hold street art has had on contemporary culture over the last decade. Flip through album covers, magazine editorials, sneakers, toys… you name it, its there. And in the end, your smarter for it.
