        Andy Warhol (Stockholm Catalogue)

      Stockholm: Moderna Museet, (1969). One introductory page was loose and been tipped back in, pages browning as usual, else near fine in Warhol's famous silkscreened flower boards. Only the second copy of this elusive edition I have seen or handled.. Second printing. Quarto. The exceedingly rare edition in hard cover, with between 10-50 copies known to exist. This copy from the library of Warhol biographer and confidant, Bob Colacello, with his signature and handwritten ex-libris on the front end paper. Warhol's famous 'Stockholm Catalogue', published on the occasion of his first European solo show at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, February - March, 1968. The concept for the catalogue was developed by Kasper König, who commissioned Factory stalwart Billy Name, and a teenage Stephen Store, to photograph how Warhol and his coconspirators lived and worked. But it was König's use of the xerox machine to reproduce Warhol's own work that gives this catalogue its signature feel. By some estimates over 200,000 copies were printed in three editions. (Parr / Badger, v2, 144-145; Open Book 238-239).

        Chicago, Chicago

      Tokyo: Bijutsu Shuppan-sha, (1969). A fine copy in silver-stamped black boards, in an extremely nice example of the fragile photo-illustrated publisher's slipcase, complete with the card insert (lightly fixed), publisher's yellow obi, and original tissue overlay (lightly worn at the edges). The nicest copy I have seen.. First Edition. Square quarto in slipcase. Foreword by Harry Callahan. Text by Shuzo Takiguchi. Layout by Yusaku Kamehura. SIGNED by Ishimoto. Beautifully conceived, designed, and printed. While the influence of Ishimoto's teacher, Harry Callahan, is evident here, there is no mistaking Ishimoto's virtuosity, both as a photographer and a book maker. Certainly the finest Chicago photobook ever published. (Parr / Badger, v1, 289; Auer 495).
