Delicious Metropolis brings together two of Wayne Thiebaud's most celebrated bodies of work: desserts and cityscapes. Between the two, fascinating juxtapositions develop. The layers of a Neapolitan cake echo the shadows cast across a street in the late afternoon. The pastel hues of iced sponge cakes match California's candy-colored houses. Curators, critics, and artists guide the reader through the book via insightful bite-size essays. This gorgeous hardcover offers fans and newcomers a refreshing and accessible way to enjoy the oeuvre of this iconic American painter.

• Photos of art along with short essays by curators, critics, and artists
• Cross multicolored page edges evoke the layers of Thiebaud's mouthwatering cakes

Fans of Wayne Thiebaud Draftsman, Counting with Wayne Thiebaud, and Richard Diebenkorn: A Retrospective will love this book.

This book is perfect for:
• Fine art buffs
• Fans of Wayne Thiebaud
• Foodies and bakers
• Fans of California and city life
