Ruscha, Edward
Dutch Details
Deventer, The Netherlands: Octopus Foundation within the Framework of Sonsbeek 71, 1971. First Edition. Near Fine. First edition. From an edition of three-thousand copies, of which approximately only 200 are extant, making this one of the most elusive titles in Ruscha's oeuvre. Bound in original wide rectangle white card covers printed in black, measuring approximately 15" x 4, with top-bound pages with lateral gatefolds opening to create pages 30" in length. Text in Dutch and English. Near Fine with title and author name handwritten on spine in ink, light toning, light soiling and light rubbing. Published in conjunction with the Sonsbeek 71 exhibition in The Netherlands, Ruscha took these images only from bridges, presenting them in a panoramic style reminiscent of his Every Building on the Sunset Strip. Although this book was supposed to have an open edition, available via mail-order, sales were slow and the printer removed and disposed of extra copies from its warehouse.
Bookseller: Burnside Rare Books, ABAA [United States]
