I took a look through this, it's full of photos, but it's a differnt take on Dali than I've seen in other books. Seems to be a rich look into the life and times of Dail. Publisher Comments: For the first time, this bookâauthorized by the Gala-Salvador DalÃ Foundationâprovides a visual history of DalÃ's entire career, illustrated with previously unpublished personal photographs, sketchbooks, drawings, letters, posters, and commercial designs, many of them drawn from the archives at the Gala-Salvador DalÃ Foundation. The photographs in particular offer key insights into the artist's career; in them we see DalÃ as a child, in his studio, with his inseparable wife and muse Gala, and traveling the world and fraternizing with celebrities including Harpo Marx, Walt Disney, Sidney Poitier, Andy Warhol, Gregory Peck, Alice Cooper, and Robert Kennedy. The inclusion of numerous designs for handbills and exhibition posters as well as magazine covers and book jackets suggests the scale of DalÃ's prolific output beyond the gallery walls. Also included are reproductions of his most famous works.
