Peter Max gets a Book
World Famous artist Peter Max gets one of Prabhupada's books-
Book distributor Drumila das shares a nectar story how he did this:
"I was talking to a woman outside the famous Omni Hotel. She had contributed to our Food for Life program. She was so nice I asked if I could take her picture and put her on my Facebook page holding her book. To reassure her I showed her some of the famous people that have gotten books from me. She said, "You know, I'm here with Peter Max."
I said, "You're here with Peter Max!?"
I said, "Can I go in and give him a book, and take my picture with him?" She said, "I'll bring him out to you!" I said, "Really!?" She said, "Sure."
He's a very famous illustrator from the 60's and 70's, whose work was on the Beatles album 'Yellow Submarine'.
Peter Max (born Peter Max Finkelstein, October 19, 1937) is a Jewish German-born American illustrator and graphic artist currently living in New York City. He's known for his use of psychedelic shapes and color palettes, spectra in his work, and the counter-culture, pop-art-focused nature of his art.
His work has been featured in various popular publications, events, and various museums and galleries worldwide. Examples of his commissions include being the official artist of the 1994 World Cup, painting of the hull art of a Norwegian Cruise Line, and border murals along entry points to the USA from Canada and Mexico."
