Palm trees and art in 'Paradise Is Now'

Featured image, a spread from Ed Ruscha's 32-page A Few Palm Trees (1971), is reproduced from Hatje Cantz's singular new release, Paradise Is Now: Palm Trees in Art. "California was a real lift for me;" Ruscha is quoted, "it was swanky and slick, its drive-in and drive-by architecture, perfect weather, palm trees, beaches, and waves—it promised a faster life than I had known, a pace that allowed me to lose things.…" Featuring work by John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers, Rodney Graham, Secundino Hernández, David Hockney, Alicja Kwade, Sigmar Polke and Rirkrit Tiravanija, among others, Paradise Is Now is the perfect gift for sophisticated summer hosts.
