The Risko Book : Robert Risko's celebrity caricatures are instantly recognizable -- recognizable both as unmistakable likenesses of famous subjects and as examples of Risko's bold and fluid style. Since 1978, when Andy Warhol gave him his first assignment for Interview magazine, Risko has drawn portraits of hundreds of notables from the worlds of film and television, rock and jazz music, politics, and literature. In addition to countless images for Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, and other major magazines, Risko has illustrated book jackets, video covers, movie posters, and CD packages.
The Risko Book is the first collection of his work. Included among the 180 striking images are political power couples Bill and Hillary Clinton, George and Barbara Bush, and Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles; writers Jacqueline Susann, Truman Capote, and Stephen King; rock stars Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Madonna, and the Artist formerly known as Prince; television fixtures David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld, and Calista Flockhart; movie stars Jack Nicholson, Marilyn Monroe, Sean Connery, Jodie Foster, and Julia Roberts; sports figures Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, and Joe DiMaggio; fashion models and designers Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Karl Lagerfeld, and Giorgio Armani; and moguls Bill Gates, S. I. Newhouse, and Martha Stewart. Not only a showcase for Risko's high-style caricatures, The Risko Book is a fascinating portrait of the newsmakers, both famous and infamous, of the last two decades of the 20th century.
