      University of California Press 1979 - 3 volume set. H ardcover. 37 cm. Good binding and cover. A few smudges on cover, light rubbing. Clean, unmarked pages.

        ANDY WARHOL: Portraits of the 70s

      New York: Random House, 1979. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Essay by Robert Rosenblum. Edited by David Whitney. Profusely illustrated, largely in color. New York: Random House in association with the Whitney Museum of American Art, 1979. First edition, #109 of 200 copies signed by Warhol. By the beginning of the 1970s, Warhol (1928-87) became engaged again by painting, returning to themes that had once before captured his attention, especially portraiture and still life, but also experimenting with new techniques and subjects. Commissioned portraits were dominant in his work during this period and remained the mainstay of his business to the end of his life. By taking Polaroid photographs of sitters after their faces had been coated with white talcum powder, he created the illusion of flawless, youthful skin. Among his sitters were a host of celebrities, patrons, and friends, including Truman Capote, Liza Minnelli, Mick Jagger, David Hockney, and Frederick Weisman. The art historian Robert Rosenblum dubbed him "court painter of the 1970s." Square octavo. Original black cloth binding, with bronze and blind-stamped titles. The spine is lightly faded; otherwise very good. Housed in the publisher's slipcase, which is a trifle edgeworn.

        Superman: multi-panel page of original Sunday newspaper strip artwork by George Tuska, black ink on Strathmore paper. Dated, upper left, "Sunday, 3-15"

      New York: D.C. Comics, Inc, 1979. 1 vols. 16 x 22 inches. Fine. 1 vols. 16 x 22 inches. A vigorous multi-panel drawing, by Tuska, fully lettered, of the exploits of the first and greatest superhero. Tuska specialized in particularly intense action scenes; he also illustrated such series as Green Lantern, Teen Titans, Justice League, Infinity, and Power Man. A fine, original example of 1970s action comic art. George Tuska finished his studies at the National Academy School of Art at age 21. In 1939, he became John Terry's assistant on 'Scorchy Smith'. At the same time, he joined the graphic studios of Jerry Iger and Will Eisner. There he worked on several comic books, like 'Jungle', 'Wings', 'Planet Wonderworld' and 'Mystery Men'. In the 1940s, Tuska created the character 'Hercule' for Quality Comics and, as a member of Studio Chesler, he drew several episodes of 'Captain Marvel', 'Golden Arrow', 'Uncle Sam' and 'El Carim'. Tuska was mobilized during World War II, so he had to postpone his comic activities. After the war, he continued in the comic field with 'The Crime Does Not Pay', and as the illustrator on 'Scorchy Smith'. In 1959, he took over the daily and weekly 'Buck Rogers' pages, which he continued until 1967. In the late 1960s, Tuska started working for Marvel, where he contributed to the series 'Ghost Rider', 'Planet of the Apes', 'X-Men', 'Daredevil' and 'Iron Man'. He continued drawing superhero comics for DC, like 'Superman', 'Superboy' and 'Challengers of the Unknown'. In 1978, along with José Delbo, Paul Kupperberg and Martin Pasko, Tuska started a new version of the daily 'Superman' comic. Tuska worked on this series until 1993.

      1979. First Edition . Signed. CLARK, Larry. Tulsa. (New York: Rapoport [Lustrum Press], 1971 [i.e. 1979]). Slim folio, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $2000.Signed limited first hardbound edition of ClarkÂ’s shocking first book, boldly signed and numbered “38/400” by Clark on the title page.“Clark set out in his photographs to try to tell the truth about the world and about himself” (Roth, 208). Tulsa is now a photography classic— the work that established ClarkÂ’s reputation, despite its limited exposure from a small print run. It documents the violent, desperate lives of “speed freaks” in the photographerÂ’s hometown, told from inside the story. Clark has innovatively collapsed the distance between the “objective observer” and his subjects. First published in 1971 by Ralph GibsonÂ’s Lustrum Press and produced with funds donated by Danny Seymour, whose own book A Loud Song was printed back-to-back with Tulsa. This is the first hardcover edition, bound by Clark in 1979 from the 1971 sheets. Roth, 208-09. Open Book, 272-73. Fine condition.
