'A sidesplitting chronicle of the inescapable influence of America's 37th President, Richard
M. Nixon, on one of the art world's liveliest mavericks, Jeffrey Vallance.' Growing up in
California in the 1960's, Vallance became, seemingly inevitably, mildy obsessed by Richard
Nixon. In 1990 after his offer to donate some of his artwork to the official Richard Nixon
Library was declined, Vallance created his own Richard Nixon Museum exhibition.
This pocket-sized book contains a mixture of Nixonian ephemera, artwork and
anecdotes in Jeffrey Vallance's unique style - blurring history and mythology
Paperback, USA, 2005, 18 x 13cm, 32 pgs.
