        ABSOLUT RUSCHA": ABSOLUT VODKA LITHOGRAPH ARTWORK - Rare Signed Copy of The Giant-Sized Original Vintage Print With Certificate of Authenticity And Collection of Absolut Advertisements - ONLY SET ONLINE

      St. Augustine, FL: Absolut Vodka (Manufacturer) /Absolute Americana Art Gallery, 1980 - 1st Printing. Signed. 1 pages. Published in 1980. Rare Ed Ruscha and Absolut advertising collectible set. A pristine signed, dated, and framed copy of the "Absolut Ruscha" original vintage lithograph/print, with the most comprehensive collection of Absolut's ground-breaking advertising throughout the campaign's history. "Absolut Ruscha" is an original artwork-rendition of the "Absolut Ruscha" print advertisement and should not be confused with the latter. It was specially produced in a small and limited edition of 200 copies. A brilliant production by Ed Ruscha: Giant-sized offset lithograph. The piece measures 33 X 45 inches. Framed in museum-quality, UV-protectant glass and austerely elegant black wood. The framed size is slightly larger. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the very highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents in a stunningly beautiful oversize format "Absolut Ruscha", one of the finest creations in Absolut Vodka's highly original and immensely influential advertising campaign. "Absolut Ruscha" is sly and sinister in its simplicity: The artist has adapted his famous "Wolf" painting, altering it slightly as the shadow of the tilted Absolut bottle. It comes with the most comprehensive collection of Absolut print, poster, and postcard advertisements throughout the campaign's long run that we have ever seen, all of them in fine to pristine condition, gathered and preserved over the years by one avid collector. Yes, of course, individual copies of the advertisements are (erratically) available online. Collecting them one-by-one is not so much costly and time-consuming as potentially a fool's errand because almost all of the advertisements appeared exactly once so most of them are now rare. Individually and collectively, the Absolut Vodka advertisement is inspired by the shape of the bottle itself and how its singular angularity reflects the best that contemporary culture has to offer. Absolut is the one brand that has fascinated, engaged, and involved nearly every major Western writer, artist, photographer, composer, pop-culture trendsetter, and public icon of the last quarter of the 20th century. Absolut pays homage to the achievement of Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Maurizio Cattelan, and Ken Scharf as well as Philip Glass, Susan Sontag, Philip Johnson, and the creators of "South Park", to name a handful from among literally thousands of contributors who have participated in the campaign over the years, most of whom would not even consider appearing in a commercial. As such, no other advertising campaign has consistently aspired to the level of art while becoming the third biggest liquor brand in the world. Ed Ruscha's contribution is Absolut-ly one of the most beautiful creations in the entire campaign, and shows yet again that every Ed Ruscha creation is a collectible work of art. An Absolut-e "must-have" Ed Ruscha vintage piece and Absolut advertising set. This original vintage lithograph is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated in pencil on recto by the artist: "Ed Ruscha 1980". It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the publisher, which states the limitation number and the appraised value ($3200) of the artwork. This item is now highly collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such framed copy of the Limited Edition available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. It comes with the most comprehensive collection of Absolut print, poster, and postcard advertisements throughout the campaign's long run that we have ever seen, all of them in fine to pristine condition. Almost all of the advertisements appeared exactly once and most of them are now rare. This collection gathers most of them conveniently and beautifully as one set. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest living artists. A flawless collectible set. (NOTE: THIS IS A HUGE ARTWORK PLUS ABSOLUT ADVERTISING COLLECTION. PLEASE INQUIRE ABOUT SHIPPING COST AND ARRANGEMENTS.

Depression, brought on in part by rejection, led to his suicide in 1969 at the age of 31. Thelma Toole’s belief in her son’s work, of how she pressured Walker Percy into reading the manuscript and his astonishment at the discovery, with every passing page, that he was reading a work of brilliance, is now the stuff of legend. Even so, it took a further three years before Thelma Toole and Walker Percy found a publisher prepared to publish ‘A Confederacy of Dunces’.A nice bright copy of this 1981 Pulitzer Prize winning novel, which is signed by Walker Percy on the title-page, beneath his printed name.

In a beige cloth covered case with sunning and discoloration to spine, a small tear at bottom of spine, and penciled price on back. Small creases to edge of pamphlet. Prints are in Fine condition and are 26 cm x 29 cm. Number 63 of a limited edition of 500. Kupreianov was a Soviet graphic artist born in 1894, in the Polish People’s Republic; died July 29, 1933, in Moscow. "In 1910, Kupreianov studied in St. Petersburg with A. P. Ostroumova-Lebedeva and in the workshops of D. N. Kardovskii and K. S. Petrov-Vodkin. He was a member of the Society of Easel Painters and the Four Arts group. From 1922 to 1930 he was a professor at the Moscow Vkhutemas-Vkhutein, and from 1930 to 1933 he taught at the Moscow Institute of Printing. Most of Kupreianov’s early works are wood engravings, such as Armored Cars (1918) and The Cruiser Aurora (1923), imbued with revolutionary romanticism. His drawings of the 1920’s and 1930’s on industrial subjects reflect a keen perception and a sense of the rhythm and joy of labor. Emotional immediacy and an expressive sketch are combined with a precise rendering of objects in the series Railroad Tracks (india ink, 1927, Tret’iakov Gallery) and Fishing Season (watercolor, 1930-31, Tret’iakov Gallery and the A. S. Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow). Kupreianov’s landscapes and interiors are marked by rich tonal variations, giving them a strikingly picturesque quality, and by a subtle mood. Kupreianov did the illustrations for Lunacharskii’s Bear’s Wedding (1924), Mayakovsky’s Fairy Tale About Petia, the Fatty, and About Sima, Who Is Much Thinner (1925), Gorky’s The Artamonovs, Mother, and The Town of Okurov (1931), and Fadeev’s The Rout (1932)." from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979).

        Ten Scenes In The Last Ascent Of Mont Blanc Including Five Views From The Summit -- Dix Scenes Illustrant Mon Ascension Au Mont-Blanc En 1853

      Editions Slatkine, Geneve - Paris 1980 - Quality 1980 reprint of the classic 1853 edition which has reached sale prices over $20,000 at auction. This reprint is limited to 300 numbered copies. This book measures 485mm tall x 325mm, and has pages [4] + 16 + [6] + 13 + 10 leaves of color plates with blank versos. The complete English text is present along with a complete translation of the text in French. The original 1853 edition was entirely in English (no French). The book was originally published with the illustrations in sepia over greyish background and not colored. Buyers had several examples hand-colored. This is a reproduction of one of the hand-colored examples. The 1853 original was issued in wrappers. This reproduction is bound in brown cloth with gilt lettering and gilt border front cover with a smaller reproduction of the front cover of the 1853 wrappers inset on the front. This is a complete reproduction minus the illustrated dedication leaf. For some unknown reason the publisher of this 1980 edition did not include a reproduction of the dedication leaf, possibly because it was missing from the one used to make the reproduction. Also, the size is slightly smaller than the 1853 original, about 7cm shorter. Fully complete examples of the book are rare, being like Pitschner's folio of Mont Blanc plates where often one or two or more plates have been extracted and framed for viewing. CONDITION: small bump upper outside cover corner tip; otherwise, very clean and fine condition. This edition was limited to 300 numbered copies. POSTAGE for this item to Europe is $44.55 by air mail. Surface mail to Europe is not available. PHOTOS ARE OF THE ACTUAL ITEM BEING OFFERED Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Kaliflower, Volume Five

      San Francisco: Free Print Shop 1980 - Very Good HC, no DJ. Beige cloth over boards, white stylized woman’s head with hair spelling 'Kaliflower' on front cover, the hair wrapping around spine onto back cover; gray laid paper end papers. Bright generally clean covers and spine have few small spots; firm, square corners; tightly bound; crisp, clean interior. Brilliant colorful images and print on every page. Starting in April of 1969, Sutter Street Commune in S.F., following Digger philosophy, began issuing a free intercommunal newspaper to area communes to ‘pass the dharma’, i.e., share information with other like-minded communards. For the next 3 years Kaliflower was distributed on a weekly basis, eventually to nearly 300 communes. This volume is drawn from some of those issues but also has some commentary about the making and growth of Kaliflower. As with everything this group produced, nothing is signed or attributed. One of the Sutter Street Commune founders was an experienced printer and the press work was high quality. This is a nicely bound, fine quality volume. Large 4to, 256 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
