(Los Angeles): Edward Ruscha, 1967. Very faint discoloration to the covers along the bottom edges, otherwise near fine in wrappers in an almost very good glassine jacket with a few spots of soiling, a 4-inch closed tear at the bottom of the back cover, a 1 inch by 1/2-inch chip at the top of the spine, and a smaller chip at the top of the front fold.. First Edition. Small quarto. One of 2413 copies. SIGNED by Ed Ruscha, briefly inscribed, and date-stamped "Jan 28 1968" at a book-signing party for this title at Irving Blum Gallery. Ruscha's fifth book, with thirty-four captioned aerial images of parking lots shot by photographer Art Alanis. A book of striking conceptual beauty and simplicity. Invitation card and small poster advertising Ruscha's appearance laid in; the poster, folded neatly in four, is an image of a Western Union Telegram announcing the event. Ruscha's work has become so much a part of contemporary art culture that it easy to forget how brilliant it is.
