    This is the most beautiful book of photographs I've seenread The uality of the print is top class and the layout is exuisite John Cale and Glenn O'Brien have written insightful forewords and the short uotes from key personalties from the Silver Factory referring to the original Warhol Factory which was located in Midtown Manhattan at 231 East 47th Street close to the UN building from 1962 to 68 complement the pictures very nicely It was Name himself who turned the Warhol Factory to Silver He painted it silver from the floor to the ceiling and covered every object from pay phone to fire extinguisher in silver foil Billy Name or Billy Linich as he was called when he began with the project was a wild decorator indeed but this book is about his pictures And what pictures The Silver Factory was probably the first and last time in history when the rich and beautiful mixed with the demi monde to such a stunning effect There were beautiful and talented people per suare industrial meter never seen before or after in modern history providing Name with abundance of photogenic material everywhere he pointed his camera lens to OK there might have been times during the roaring twenties in New York Paris or Weimar Berlin that match the glamour of the Silver Factory but none have left such a rich archive of photographs as those by Name collected here or those by Stephen Shore and Nat Finkelstein published in other fine books Shore's Velvet Years; the Warhol's Factory 1965 to 67 is richer in eyewitness accounts Reed Tucker Cale Morrison International Velvet etc but the photos though very good do not match these by Name in this absolute beauty of a book that should be on every self respecting WarholVelvets fan's coffee table
