(PETTIBON, RAYMOND). Pettibon, Raymond & Michael Gira. SELFISHNESS: WITH DRAWINGS BY RAYMOND PETTIBON. Lawndale, CA: SST Publications, 1985. First Edition 1/500. 8vo. Stapled Xeroxed Wrappers. Artist's Book. Fine. np (28pp), 9 b&w illustrations. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Raymond Pettibon first came to prominence during the late-seventies with his raw, literary-inflected imagery for Black Flag, Sonic Youth, and SST Records. Over the subsequent decades, the erstwhile Southern California artist has deservedly become an international contemporary art icon. "Limited to five hundred copies (of which some four hundred were destroyed)", "Selfishness" is his 1985 SST artist book cum 'zine collaboration featuring a text by Swans frontman Michael Gira accompanied by nine Pettibon drawings. A most handsome, guaranteed authentic example of this uncommon, early Pettibon tour de force (entry number thirty-two in Uwe Koch and Roberto Ohrt's "A Catalogue Raisonné of Artists' Books by Raymond Pettibon, 1978-98"). Inventory Number: 023297
