Available in flaming full color, this collection of matchbook art by Norman Conquest includes reproductions of mixed media multiple editions, one-of-a kinds, and virtual creations produced over the years.
In 1989, while a fiery debate over flag-burning raged in Washington, D.C., the artist created his notorious “Beuyscout Matchbook” — a multiple edition of 100 examples.
Other works of political satire followed such as his “generic protest” series which included an “Impeach Him/Her Now!” matchbook.
There were also humorous works aimed at the art world, such as “Drool” (1991).
This unique chapbook features color reproductions of these rare, incendiary objects.
