Unpaginated (28 pp.) Original black cloth covered hinged spine over olive paper covered boards, with black lettering on front cover. Publisher's advertisement laid in. Heinze's "Ahnung" is, in the words of Parr and Badger, "about the sense of uncertainty that the advent of this brave new world [after the fall of the Berlin wall] might generate, and also about how colour photographs can be made to reflect feelings rather than just documenting the superficial aspect of things.another remarkable photobook dealing not only with the alienation that many feel in relation to today's world, but also with the unique situation that was Berlin in the time of the Wall." [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006), pp.66-67]. This volume features 16 full-bleed, four-color plates by Volker Heinze, finely printed in Germany on 200 gsm Seiler Opus paper by O.R.T. Kirchner + Graser, Berlin. Size of plates: 11-7/8 x 10".

        The Ballad of Sexual Dependency (signed)

      Aperture, New York 1989 - Small Square 4to, 144pp. Printed wraps as issued. 126 Colour plates. With just minor rubbing to wraps and browning to edges. More images available on request. Flatsigned by Goldin to titlepage. Nan Goldin's masterpiece. Cited in Roth, Parr, The Photobook, The Open Book, Hasselblad Center, M. + M. Auer etc. "Nan Goldin's The Ballad of Sexual Dependency is a visual diary chronicling the struggle for intimacy and understanding between friends, family, and loversÑcollectively described by Goldin as her Òtribe.Ó Her work describes a world that is visceral, charged, and seething with life. Her lush color photography and candid style demand that the viewer go beyond the surface to encounter a profound intensity. As Goldin writes: ÒReal memory, which these pictures trigger, is an invocation of the color, smell, sound, and physical presence, the density and flavor of life.Ó Through an accurate and detailed record of her life, Ballad reveals GoldinÕs personal odyssey as well as a more universal understanding of the different languages men and women speak, and the struggle between autonomy and dependency. Over the past twenty-five years, the influence of Ballad on photography and other aesthetic realms has continually grown, making the work a contemporary classic. Nan GoldinÕs story of urban life on the fringe was the swan song of an era that reached its peak in the early eighties." Scarce signed and in such good condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Screenplay]: Sir Drone

      Stapled photocopied pages of the handwritten manuscript used as a shooting script, and possibly as a continuity script. No cover sheet, possibly, or even probably, as issued. Quite worn around the edges, staples pulled through in a few instances, and the first and last leaves in danger of detaching, but a sound good copy. There are a few notes in an unknown hand (possibly Pettibon's) excising or emphasizing scenes, and handwritten numbers in the margins breaking the entire film into separate scenes. One of Pettibon's first films, one of four written and directed by him in 1989. According to the IMDB summary the film is about "[t]hree teenagers from the industrial part of Los Angeles [who] try to form a punk rock band in Hollywood." The film featured legendary punk and post-punk rock bass guitarist Mike Watt, and Pettibon also appeared in the film. Pettibon is a renowned artist and filmmaker. From the late 1970s through the mid-1980s, he was closely associated with the punk rock band Black Flag and the record label SST Records, both founded by his older brother Greg Ginn. Pettibon scripts are rare and ephemeral, probably not intended to have been preserved. Pettibon additionally performed with several bands, including Sur Drone. .
