Larry Stanton: Think of Me When It Thunders
Larry Stanton: Think of Me When It Thunders is a book, edited by Fabio Cherstich and Arthur Lambert, that pays tribute to portrait artist Larry Stanton.
The Manhattan artist, who died before he could leave his mark, portrayed faces by focusing on the attitudes and feelings hidden in facial expressions, and this publication compiles Stanton’s art and life to date.
The book, published by Apartamento Publishing, includes 139 works of art, many of them portraits of people he met during his nights out, as well as friends and family and an extensive collection of self-portraits.
The publication, bound in hardcover lined with Fedrigoni Papers’ Imitlin Fiandra Neve paper, is in part an art book, while also bringing a personal story to the reader. The cover of the book features a dry debossing, both on the front and spine, accompanied by a paper band printed in black ink.
