Warhol famously had a longstanding fascination with Truman Capote (1924-1984), an American author, screenwriter, playwright, and actor. After decades of one-way admiration their paths finally crossed into mutual appreciation. Warhol founded a magazine in late 1969 called Interview, which featured a 60:40 ratio of interview material to commercial print ads. He famously traded a portrait of Capote in exchange for a year’s worth of columns. Interview magazine is still in publication today and is referred to as “The Crystal Ball of Pop.”
