The Lapis Press, Los Angeles 1988 - np (28pp), 1 letterpress colophon + title page, 8 color etchings. "Flipping, Kicking, Howling, Rolling, Sitting, Standing, Climbing, Telling" is the oversized, extraordinarily luxe artist's book published in 1988 by Sam Francis' Lapis Press containing eight original etchings by Edward Ruscha. Each "silhouette" image was pulled by master printer Jacob Samuel at The Litho Shop on a 20 x 16" sheet of Rives BFK paper. The title and colophon pages are printed by hand-letterpress, and along with the etchings, four blank preliminaries, and endpapers have been hand-bound by Klaus Ullrich S. Rotzscher in an exquisite debossed, full dark green Nigerian goatskin. The book is housed in a stylish matching goatskin and linen slipcase. A most handsome copy of the first and only printing (print entries 149-156 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999") of this exquisite, exceedingly uncommon volume NUMBERED (19/35) AND SIGNED by the artist in ink on the rear colophon, as issued. This is accompanied by a pristine example of the hors commerce 20 x 16" Lapis Press promotional broadside cum print for the book featuring a colored etching by Ruscha of the letter "B" (entry M-59 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999") that was issued in an edition of forty numbered but unsigned copies.
