        For the Sake of a Single Verse

      New York Atelier Mourlot 1968 - With Twenty-four Lithographs, Each Signed by Shahn SHAHN, Ben, [artist]. RILKE, Rainer Maria. For the Sake of a Single Verse. New York: Atelier Mourlot, 1968. First edition. One of 200 copies, signed by Shahn out of a total edition of 950. This being number eighteen. Complete with twenty-four lithographs, on Richard de Bas hand-made paper, each signed by the artist. Large folio. Lithographs are loose as issued. Housed in a half vellum over cloth clamshell. Clamshell is embossed on the front with an image of a hand with a pen. Spine of the clamshell lettered in gilt. A fine copy. "I had now long ago found in Rilke the passage that came to mean so much to me. He was a writer about the processes of art who was not telling me what to do, what to think, how to paint. No; he was too engrossed in his own discoveries. He was sharing with me the doubts and the hesitations of art, the probings, the slow emergence of forms. His every line of writing was art, and yet such art was inseparable from its life content. No manifesto could ever tell me more clearly than this one paragraph of Rilke's that art is an emanation from a person; that it is shaped and formed out of the shape and form of that person. In being so acutely personal to him it achieves also a rare universality. Rilke is speaking, (is he not?) to the innermost recesses of the consciousness, an area in which we spend so much of our time and expend so much of our feeling, and yet an area that is so remote from communication with our fellow-beings, an area that is, unhappily, increasingly remote from the reaches of art.

        Andy Warhol (Moderna Museet)

      Sweden: Moderna Musett, 1968. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Soft cover. Fine. This is a first edition, first printing of the seminal artist book Andy Warhol published by Moderna Musett, Sweden in 1968 as an exhibition catalogue for the show Andy Warhol at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, February - March, 1968. With virtually no text except for some of Warhol\'s famous quotes, the book contains numerous full page black and white illustrations of iconic Warhol images as well as hundreds of black and white photographs by Rudy Burkhardt, Eric Pollitzer, John Schiff, and Stephen Shore that provide incredible insight into the remarkable creativity of Andy Warhol. Writing about the book in their photobook reference work The Photobook: A History, Volume 2, Parr and Badger stated, It is a fine example of the catalogue-as-artist\'s-book, a form that ostensibly began with the Dadaists and Surrealists, and is produced with some of the roughest reproductions ever seen, which are entirely appropriate, and supplemented by a long section of Factory snapshots by Billy Name. The genre was revitalized by the Pop movement, and Warhol in particular, which demonstrates his position as a latter-day Dadaist. The Moderna Museet publication especially had a great influence upon Japanese photography in the late 1960s and 1970s, particularly the photobooks of the Provoke era. Measuring approximately 10.5 inched x 8.25 inches, the book is glue bound in illustrated wrappers of bright Warholian flowers bleeding over both front and back covers. The condition of the book is in FINE condition in Fine- wraps with small professionally repaired tear and very minimal surface wear. This book is a notoriously delicate publication that is very rarely found in such wonderful condition. Cited in both Parr & Badgers The Photobook: A History and the The Open Book by Andrew Roth.

Although it is a memoir, it is filled with many interesting, somewhat fictional stories. Illustrated with drawings by Peter Parnall.
