The Art of Jessica Voorsanger is a comprehensive monograph of multimedia artist Voorsanger's work, dealing with the subjects of popular culture and celebrity, identity, obsession, escapism, and the changing relationship between the fan and the idol, containing an intoxicating combination of celebrity gossip, TV shows and movie stars.

The book explores a range of her work, from karaoke performances, kitsch installations, paintings and sculpture, with a particular focus on new work emerging from her ongoing project, The Impostor Series. By using humor and parody in The Impostor Series, her work is also able to tackle tough topics including her personal cancer treatment, gender politics, and the discomfort that we can feel as an audience through humor.

As a book The Art of Jessica Voorsanger operates on the same plain as the world she is critiquing, the design itself drawing on celebrity annuals, memories of falling in love with David Cassidy, and a childhood spent celebrity-spotting in New York's Upper East Side. The publication takes on board all of the playfulness, seriousness and vibrance of Voorsanger's work, contributing to the wide-reaching current discussion in society around celebrity in an engaging way.

Although included in several publications, Jessica Voorsanger does not yet have one specific to her work, giving this book particular significance.
