        ELECTRIC LADYLAND. The original album cover artwork for the U.S. issue of Jimi Hendrix's 1968 masterpiece

      Los Angeles: Warner Brothers. 1968. The original album cover artwork for the U.S. issue of Jimi Hendrix's 1968 masterpiece, Electric Ladyland. Photo collage on board, ink on paper. Including the "mechanical" for an unreleased alternate version; two original type designs, hand drawn in ink; and a front & back cover slick and an inner gatefold stat of the released version. All of these were created by the Warner Bros. Records art department prior to the album release in 1968. Unique. The original artwork for the hand-lettered type is believed to have been drawn by Los Angeles designer John Van Hamersveld, and the mechanical laid out by the album's art director, Ed Thrasher. In the design and print process "mechanicals" were sent to the label's colour separator, and used to make film for the album cover printer. Provenance: In the mid 1970s the Warner Bros. art department hired a freelance art director to go through their archives and dispose of old files, to create space for newer projects. He was given permission to keep a number of pieces, and gifted these to a friend. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request.

      (BENGSTON, BILLY AL) (RUSCHA, EDWARD). Monte, James. Foreword by Maurice Tuchman. BILLY - WITH A FLOCKED SANDPAPER COVER DESIGNED BY ED RUSCHA - AN EXTRAORDINARY SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY. Signed Association Copy from the Artist. Los Angeles: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1968. First Edition 1/2500. Oblong 4to. Bolted Sandpaper Wrappers. Artist Monograph. Fine./No Jacket - As Issued.. np (64pp), 41 b&w and 10 color illustrations. With an exhibition history and bibliography. Designed by Edward Ruscha. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Billy" is the innovatively designed and bound catalogue published in conjunction with the first major Museum retrospective of the noted Venice surfer cum motorcycle racer cum artist Billy Al Bengston. Its covers are two sheets of 50 and 100 grit Garnet sandpaper with Ed Ruscha's emblematic "Billy" flocked in pink on the front, and clasped through the spine with two machine bolts with hexagonal nuts that also secure a pink satin ribbon page marker. Each of the forty-six exhibited works by the Ferus Gallery-affiliated artist is reproduced, including more than a dozen of his innovative "dento" paintings on aluminum. Bengston was the real life "Moondoggie" to Kathy Kohner's "Gidget" in the popular Frederick Kohner novel of the same name, and the frontispiece portrait of the artist as a young man is by Don Bachardy. The design and installation for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art exhibition was by Frank Gehry! A most handsome example of this ultra-cool Ruscha-inflected objet bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED INSCRIPTION "For Bill / Come by / B.A.B." to William Wilson in blue ink on the title page showing just the slightest bit of wear with the "67X The Authorized Version / Bengston Bio" attributed to Alan D. Shean printed as a single tissue sheet laid in, as issued. The late William Wilson was the noted art critic for the Los Angeles Times for over thirty years, and a friend of the artist. We obtained this directly from Mr. Wilson's library prior to his passing.

Paris: Editions de l'Atelier Crommelynck, 1968. |~||~||~||~||~| Picasso drew on his own vast repertory of myths to illustrate this play by Crommelynck, which tells the story of a man undone by jealousy. Picasso had a lifelong relationship with Crommelynck, and he had intended to illustrate the play for quite some time before this edition finally appeared (the play was first presented in 1920). Crommelynck's sons, who had opened a printing atelier in 1963, printed many of Picasso's later prints, and produced the present work. This is one of 150 copies signed by Picasso and Crommelynck, from a total edition of 200. A mint copy of this marvelous book. Goeppert 140.
