The Brown Beatnik Tomes presents a collection of prose and paintings from artist and entrepreneur Danny Simmons; this is his most wide reaching and multi-disciplined project to date. Among the most impressive artists of his day, The New York Times says that he "injects freshness" into his abstracts, and that they are "meticulously rendered and decoratively impressive". Simmons' work can be seen all over the world and in such prominent establishments as Chase Manhattan Bank, The Smithsonian, the United Nations and more. His work is highly respected within the art world and he has become extremely collectable; devoted fans of his work include music industry executive and producer Lyor Cohen and actor Will Smith. Foreword by Russell Simmons.
