A Look Back at Andy Warhol’s Chelsea Girls from an Upcoming New Book

START body

New York’s Chelsea Hotel might still be under renovation, but you won’t have to wait much longer to take a look inside its storied walls thanks to a new title from Art Book and The Andy Warhol Foundation: Andy Warhol’s Chelsea Girls.

Based on the master of Pop Art’s iconic 1966 film of the same name, it documents the wild, unadulterated and creative debauchery that occurred at his legendary Factory. To paint a picture, it shows beautiful girls on psychedelics, a gay Pope, and some good old-fashioned S&M, and much, much more. Those were the days.

Featuring high-quality digitized stills from the film, unpublished transcripts, and other archival footage, the book also includes stunning snapshots of original It-girls/Warhol Superstars like Edie Sedgewick, Nico (of the Velvet Underground), Ondine, Mary Woronov, and Brigid Berlin. Edited with text by curator of film and video at the Andy Warhol Museum Geralyn Huxley, it also features an essay by film director Gus Van Sant.

Andy Warhol’s Chelsea Girls is available April 24, 2018.
