The above suggestions are more reflections of the idea that if I want to see an art book about 1950s America, then I must be in the market for medical supplies because obviously I am expecting Nuclear Winter any second now. (Don't tell North Korea).
I think I've figure out these two textbook-type suggestions. Note that they are based on my buying a book on Superman that is part of a series "Icons of America."
I bet you that SOMEWHERE the "Icons of America" series is part of the reading list for a college class. Which makes it a textbook and therefore Amazon figures I want to buy EVERY OTHER textbook they sell!?!?
