Andy Warhol's Index (Book)
New York: Random House, 1967. Hardcover. Very Good. A handsome copy of the 1967 stated 1st printing of this seminal artist's book, cited by both Andrew Roth and Martin Parr as among the most influential photo/artists' books of the century. This copy, while boasting a very bright front cover (with crisp, completely unflecked silver lettering along the spine), is missing 2 of its 10 original multiples/objects. Included are: the castle pop-up; the red accordion (which doesn't squeak); the bi-plane pop-up; "The Chelsea Girls" paper wheel (unattached); the Velvet Underground/Lou Reed record (attached); the double-image rainbow nose; the Hunt's Tomato Paste pop-up; and the balloon (inevitably smushed down, as in virtually every copy). Missing are: the 12-sided "sphere" and the 8 rectangular tear-offs. Nonetheless, a respectable, solid copy, and in the much less common hardback. Tight and VG to VG+, with light scuffing and soiling to the rear panel. The page opposite the Velvet Underground/Lou Reed record was roughly handled and does show some minor tearing; otherwise, the interior is very clean. (From the title page: "with the assistance of Stephen Shore, Paul Morrissey, Ondine, Nico -- several photographs by Nat Finkelstein, Factory Fotos by Billy Name").
