"In this book, Cecile Whiting examines what Pop looked like when it left the highbrow cloisters of Manhattan's art galleries and ventured westward to Los Angeles and its sprawling suburbs. She finds the artists created in their works a new and different sense of space, the urban experience, and popular culture."--BOOK JACKET.
