John Rombola: Eclectic Eccentric
Chronicle Books (2009)
Rediscovered by a new generation of art and design lovers, John Rombola’s rambunctious, spirited work is gathered here in this first-ever comprehensive monograph of his work.
His drawings leaped from the pages of the numerous magazines that first featured them in the early 1960s. Lithe, loose, and in perpetual motion, they are today reminiscent of the work of Saul Steinberg, Ben Shahn, and early Warhol, with whom Rombola shared the mischievousness of Pop Art and the exhilaration of the Sixties counterculture.
