(MAN RAY). Man Ray. "1951 NEW YEAR'S GREETINGS FROM JULIET AND MAN RAY": AN ORIGINAL RAYOGRAPH. NP (Hollywood, CA). ND (1950).: Self-Published, First Edition. Oblong 12mo. Silver Gelatin Photograph. Near Fine. One 3 3/4 x 6 3/4" silver gelatin photograph printed recto only. This is an original Rayograph designed and printed by Man Ray that was sent to friends as a New Year's card while the noted artist was in residence in Hollywood with wife Juliet. The vintage silver gelatin print features the text "1951 greetings from Juliet and Man Ray" in the artist's hand stretching between a starfish and another object that looks like a malformed croissant. A handsome example of this exceedingly uncommon ephemeral item showing just a tiny bit of wear and handling at each of its lower corners along with some mild "silvering" of the photographic surface when viewed in raking light. In addition, Man Ray himself has written "Apt K 1245 Vine St" - his studio address at the time - along the top of the verso in pencil. While there is no mailing envelope to establish its provenance, this was acquired by us several years ago directly from the noted local bookseller that purchased the library of Los Angeles master printer Lynton R. Kistler - who collaborated frequently with both Man Ray and Merle Armitage.

Photography Monograph. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 54pp, 25 color illustrations. Designed by Paul McMenamin. Originally published in conjunction with her 1995 solo exhibition at MOCA, Uta Barth's first catalogue went out of print almost immediately upon publication. This was our initial look at the artist's hazy color photographs of indistinct subjects which, though they appear to be indecipherable, are mysteriously evocative and suggestive of great meaning. Now, Barth has produced along with the extraordinary St. Ann's Press a new edition of this, featuring a different cover photograph, and color images for the previously b&w text illustrations. Limited to forty-five copies only, this example is from the ultra-deluxe hardbound, slipcased edition NUMBERED, SIGNED AND DATED by Uta Barth in black ink on the title page, as issued, that includes a SIGNED AND DATED 9 1/4 x 8 1/2" color print entitled "Ground (02.1)" mounted on one inch deep plywood backing.

CD with Insert in a Jewel Box. Artist's Multiple. Near Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. np, profusely illustrated in color. This is reclusive British artist and provocateur Banksy's 2006 artist's multiple for which he notoriously purchased five hundred copies of Paris Hilton's just-released debut recording, hilariously reworked the interior artwork in a fashion not at all flattering to the socialite-turned-chanteuse, shrinkwrapped those copies each now containing a new booklet made from scans of the altered original, then smuggled them onto the shelves of HMV shops across the UK to be resold to unsuspecting shoppers. Once discovered, this guerilla switcheroo scored Banksy a huge coup in both the art and popular press, and created a huge demand for this repurposed collector's item! A most handsome example of the 2006 first and only true Banksy-generated edition of this work bearing the "Paris Hilton Debut Album" adhesive sticker on the front of its clear jewel box along with the all-important verifying Warner Brothers pressing code R049-1712-5155 embedded in the CD's matrix, as issued.

(BLOOM, BARBARA). Bloom, Barbara. BARBARA BLOOM: POSTER / ARTWORK FOR "THE DIAMOND LANE". Los Angeles: Foundation for Art Resources, Inc. (FAR), 1981. First Edition. Printed Poster. Artist's Multiple. Very Good. One 30 1/2 x 21 3/4" poster printed color offset recto only, flat and unmailed. This is the limited edition poster/artwork produced as part of Barbara Bloom's 1981 piece entitled "The Diamond Lane" - a supposed feature-length film written and directed by the artist with music by Peter Gordon that starred Eric Fischl, Susan Davis, Marianne deGraaf, and Cees van Hoorn. There was however no full-length film, only a psychologically fraught five-minute "trailer" (produced with the assistance of a Dutch governmental grant) and a small print-run of one-sheet posters to be used for publicity purposes. In 1981, Los Angeles' conceptually-based Foundation for Art Resources, Inc. rented time in several local theatres to show the trailer amongst actual studio coming attractions while displaying the posters in their lobbies. The idea seemed to be that the anticipation created in a few random viewers would never be fulfilled, thus potentially spawning individual mythologies about the fictional movie based on the fragments they had observed in the theatre... Needless to say, if you blinked, you missed this one, and this poster designed by Ms. Bloom is the remaining documentation of the artwork/event. A most handsome, still flat copy of this uncommon artist's multiple (documented on page 147 of New York's International Center for Photography's 2007 publication "The Collections of Barbara Bloom" ) that has been neither folded nor hung, showing some mild crinkling along the length of one of its edges.

Designed by Hans Werner Holzwarth. "Christopher Wool became known in the mid-1980s through paintings produced with rubber rollers commonly used to simulate decorative wallpaper patterns on walls. By 1988 he had hit stride with his dry, dead-pan word paintings while continuing to explore the possibilities of pattern painting. Since the 1990s, he has been developing the painterly qualities of his work, using a mostly black-and-white palette, starting from abstract lines drawn with a spray gun or layered stock images, overpainting silkscreens on linen, wiping out images, with a widening variety of media, a process that can involve photography, silkscreen, and, in the new millennium, also the computer. This monograph is staggering in scope and depth, exploring Wool’s work in large-scale reproductions, production Polaroids, and installation photos by Wool himself".

(PIERCY, CLIVE). Piercy, Clive. CLIVE PIERCY: PRETTY VACANT; THE LOS ANGELES DINGBAT OBSERVED - DELUXE LIMITED SLIPCASED EDITION WITH A PRINT SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER. Signed by the Photographer, with a B&W Print. San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 2003. First Edition 1/75 Deluxe. Stout Oblong 8vo. Pictorial Boards in Slipcase. Artist's Book. As New./No Jacket - As Issued. np (448pp), profusely illustrated in b&w and color. Designed by Ph.D. In essence a rectangular stucco box, the dingbat apartment building exploded in popularity during Los Angeles' housing boom of the fifties and sixties. Typically, they eschew ornamentation and details on three sides in order to focus the viewer's attention to the facade - often incorporating florid signage, elaborate window treatments, and carports. These now-decaying buildings are mostly ignored and/or reviled by locals, while revered by strangers to the city. Arriving there from the U.K. in 1982, Clive Piercy (a partner in the noted graphic design firm Ph.D), began traversing the city, and taking roll after roll of film of these unique monuments. Inspired by both Oklahoma native Ed Ruscha's "Some Los Angeles Apartments" and the late British architectural critic Reyner Banham's "Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies", Piercy has artfully combined his photo-documentation cum artist's book of these multi-unit dwellings (duly noting their often hilarious names) with a constantly changing, collage-like design ethos to create another great outsider meditation on L.A.'s urban sprawl. From the author's self-published edition of only seventy-five deluxe copies, this features a printed orange silk slipcase containing a BOLDLY SIGNED and numbered book, with a 4 3/4 x 6 3/4" signed photographic print by Clive Piercy laid in at the rear. A pristine example. 0-8118-4024-7 Inventory Number: 014308

"Daido Moriyama is without question one of Japan's most important contemporary photographers and it is not surprising that this memoir, first published as a series of essays in Asahi Camera twenty-one years ago, is regarded as a classic in photographic literature. In "Memories of a Dog", Moriyama approaches photography through language, and it is difficult to say which is the more evocative medium. His vividly expressive prose is in perfect harmony with the grainy, black and white images that in turn have a poetry all their own. As both reader and viewer one becomes completely absorbed, and photographs that will always be remarkable are given a new, very personal, layer of meaning. This is an eloquent autobiographical account of the artist's progress through life ".

(VAN VLIET, DON aka CAPTAIN BEEFHEART) (CORBIJN, ANTON). Van Vliet, Don, Jan Van Vliet, Anton Corbijn & Ben Watson. DON VAN VLIET: RIDING SOME KIND OF UNUSUAL SKULL SLEIGH - DELUXE SLIPCASED EDITION WITH A SIGNED ETCHING. Signed by the Artist - with an Etching. Los Angeles: Artist Ink Editions, 2003. First Edition 1/1500 Deluxe. 4to. Linen Over Boards, Slipcased. Artist Monograph. As New/No Jackets - As Issued. 88 + 96pp, 1 audio CD + 1 DVD, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Tim Eames. "Don Van Vliet aka Captain Beefheart was a visual artist before he was a musician. As a young child he drew serious accolades for his animal sculptures and was offered a scholarship to study in Europe. His parents declined; and while continuing to create in the visual medium, he turned his attention to music, within ten years forming the first incarnation of the legendary experimental outfit Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band. The following fifteen years are music history. But in 1983 Van Vliet retired from music to pursue painting and drawing, the focus of this extraordinary boxed set. "Riding Some Kind Of Unusual Skull Sleigh" (named after a painting the artist completed in 1987) provides an opportunity to own one of his original, signed color etchings. Executed on paper and cataloged as "Untitled (Self-Portrait)", the work measures 6 5/8 x 9 1/2". The paper itself measures 7 7/8 x 10 1/2". Van Vliet produced only 1,500 copies of the piece, one for each individually numbered copy of this Artist Ink Edition. A deluxe 9 1/4 x 12 3/4 x 2 3/4" slipcase carefully houses the etching as well as two museum-quality books, a CD, and a DVD. The first book, entitled "Riding Some Kind Of Unusual Skull Sleigh" (88 pages), is a monograph of sorts, containing an essay by art historian Ben Watson and full-color reproductions of sixty of Van Vliet's paintings and drawings - some of them previously unpublished. The second book, entitled "Splinters" (96 pages), features portrait photos of the artist by Anton Corbijn, along with a selection of personal archival material supplied by Don and Jan Van Vliet - including family snapshots, newspaper clippings, drawings, and sketches. None of this material has heretofore been seen. The CD features the artist reading eleven of his previously unreleased spoken-word pieces spanning 1977-1999, which are also reprinted in the Splinters book. The DVD features "Some YoYo Stuff", a 1994 filmed observation by Anton Corbijn. "Riding Some Kind Of Unusual Skull Sleigh is available only as an individually numbered limited edition of 1,500 copies". A pristine example of this remarkable package, now out of print, still sealed in the publisher's original shipping carton.

They're all here: his high-school crushes, his paramours, the girls and women who tormented him - and to whom he gave it right back - or who caught his eye on the street, and, of course, his wife and fiery sometimes collaborator Aline, and their daughter Sophie. Add to this his mistress of fifteen years and you have not only a catalogue raisonné of Crumb's portraits of women but also a revealing record of a passionate life. Crumb calls it "an autobiography of sorts" and it is ­ these aren't just portraits of women but the most intimate portrait of Crumb's life in love". "Gotta Have 'Em" illuminates Crumb's lifelong fascination and obsession with the fairer sex. A pristine copy of the deluxe edition limited to one hundred copies embossed with the publisher's chop on the title page housed in a silkscreened clamshell box accompanied by the 10 x 7 1/2" color serigraph print "Wife in Front of Record Collection - November 2002" SIGNED "R.

Los Angeles: Foundation for Art Resources, Inc. (FAR), 1980. First Edition 1/500. Large Square 4to. Wrappers. Artist's Book with Multiple. Fine. np, 17 b&w illustrations. Text in English. This truly unusual James Lee Byars item was produced in an edition of five hundred copies in 1980 by the Los Angeles non-profit Arts organization Foundation for Art Resources, Inc. The publication's primary funding came from an NEA grant that was written in such a way that prevented the actual sale of the book itself! This untitled publication is referred to as "The White Book", and was conceived with the artist's collaboration as an expanded version of the 1978 Kunsthalle Bern exhibition catalogue that was a full documentation of Byars' public performance pieces from 1963 through 1975. Laid in to the book is the unique multiple artwork "The Exhibition of Perfect", which disperses in a rather surprising way when the book is opened. Approximately three hundred of these were sent hors commerce to Museums, Art Libraries, Non-Profit Arts organizations and friends and supporters of FAR. It was never made commercially available - one had to receive this as a gift at the time of publication. The remaining copies languished with the publisher, never having been assembled with the artwork or distributed, and have ultimately disappeared. A bright white, near pristine copy of this exceedingly uncommon and desirable James Lee Byars gem.

This is the lovely hardbound catalogue published in conjunction with the 1997 John Gossage exhibition entitled "There and Gone" that travelled from Hannover's Sprengel Museum to Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College. It features reproductions of each of the photographs shown, and includes a sixteen page insert containing a transcribed interview between Gossage and curator Thomas Weski. According to Chris Pichler, Nazraeli Press planned to produce a deluxe boxed edition of one hundred and forty-four copies with an ISBN separate from the trade edition - each retailing for nine hundred and fifty dollars and containing a single unique photograph from the one hundred and forty-four images in the book. Ten clamshell boxes were fabricated in Japan, and John Gossage agreed to produce and supply the prints as orders were received. Unfortunately, the first two copies ordered were returned to Nazraeli by the purchasers who objected to Mr. Gossage's insistence on splashing a few drops of coffee on the mat of each of the original prints as an artistic gesture, and the entire project was then scrapped. Only between three and five vintage completed copies of this near-unique edition exist. A most handsome example of the exceedingly uncommon unnumbered deluxe edition BOLDLY SIGNED by John Gossage in black ink on the first preliminary housed in the publisher's debossed and silkscreened black clamshell box, as issued.

(SZABO, JOSEPH). Szabo, Joseph. Introduction by Cameron Crowe. JOSEPH SZABO: TEENAGE - DELUXE BOXED EDITION WITH A SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH. Signed by the Photographer - with a b&w Photograph. Los Angeles: Greybull Press, 2003. First Edition 1/50 Deluxe. Square 4to. Pictorial Boards, Boxed. Photography Monograph. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. np (168pp), profusely illustrated in b&w. Designed by Lorraine Wild. Joseph Szabo's seldom-seen first book "Almost Grown" has become a photographic cult classic. An inspiration for the look of Sofia Coppola's "The Virgin Suicides", its matter-of-fact snaps of seventies Long Island teenagers captured at school and the beach are keenly telling of that time in our lives when social acceptance and what clothes we wore meant nearly everything. In "Teenage", his first anthology of work since 1978, here again are the students of Malverne High School (where Szabo taught photography from 1972 to 1999) along with a charming introduction by director Cameron Crowe, whose teens of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" occupied a fictional, yet parallel universe. The photographer's intimacy with these kids is uncanny - he still seems like a fly on the wall even when his subjects are staring straight into the lens. A pristine example of the deluxe edition limited to fifty copies housed in a printed pictorial clamshell box along with the black and white photograph "Night Owls on Broadway" SIGNED AND NUMBERED (44/50) by Joseph Szabo on the recto in ink, as issued.

(DE GEER, KARL JOHAN).Kugelberg, Johan. KARL JOHAN DE GEER: THE CAMERA AS CONSOLATION 1959-1980 - DELUXE LIMITED SIGNED EDITION WITH A VINTAGE PRINT HOUSED IN A HAND DRAWN SLIPCASE BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER . Signed by the Photographer - with a Photo Laid In. New York: Ectoplasm Books, 2009. First Edition. Oblong Small 4to. Boards in Pictorial Jacket. Photography Monograph. As New/As New. np (60pp), profusely illustrated in b&w. Designed by Taylor Brigode for Octopuss Limited. "Carl Johan De Geer, born in 1938, grew up in absurd privilege and abject unhappiness as a member of one of Sweden’s most powerful aristocrat families. His parents showed no discernable interest in him or his siblings, and so he grew up on a grand country estate with his grandparents, went to art school in the late 1950’s, and in an epic choice of rejection lived his life to this day as a perennial Swedish underground artist, working in counterpoint to the privilege of his surname. De Geer, as a masterful Leica M4 snapshot giant à la Van Der Elsken or Daido Moriyama, has the sacred ability to capture the monotone grit of everyday life and demand its reflection. He gives us a glimpse of a Sweden inhabited by people who are the other, whose life experience is impregnated with otherness, providing a visual cue into an unseen world. The visible scratches, fades and imperfections, the wabi-sabi of this collection of vintage prints, is reflected in the images". "The Camera as Consolation" is the hardbound catalogue published in conjunction with the Johan Kugelberg curated 2009 Boo-Hooray Gallery exhibition of the gritty Vietnam-era social reportage of this unsung Swedish master that parallels the work Ed Van Der Elsken and Anders Peterson. A pristine copy of this already out of print document from a handful of ultra deluxe copies BOLDLY SIGNED by Carl Johan De Geer in black ink on the front pastedown that comes with a 5 3/4 x 4 1/8" SIGNED VINTAGE B&W PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT in a translucent archival envelope affixed to the inside front cover and is housed in the publisher's handmade black linen over board slipcase with a SIGNED DRAWING in white marker on the front face by Carl Johan De Geer, as issued. Laid in is the gallery's printed exhibition invitation as well as a special numbered (24/80) silkscreened opening invitation designed and SIGNED by the photographer.

(MAN RAY). Man Ray. MAN RAY: HAND WRITTEN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE 1941 EXHIBITION OF "IMAGINARY PORTRAIT OF A FRENCHMAN OF THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY" AT THE ARTIST'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIO. Hollywood, CA. ND (1940).: Self-Published, First Edition. 12mo. Cardstock Postcard. Exhibition Announcement. Very Good. One 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" cardstock sheet printed by hand recto only, no illustrations. This is an announcement designed and printed by hand by Man Ray that was sent to friends and prospective collectors inviting them to a short-lived private viewing held at his Hollywood studio in January of 1941. On display was Man Ray's newly revised version of his 1938 masterwork "Portrait Imaginaire de D.A.F. de Sade" - the original having been left behind when the artist hastily fled Paris following the German occupation at the outbreak of World War II. The text is in the artist's hand in black ink on terracotta-colored cardstock, and reads "Man Ray is showing his imaginary portrait of a Frenchman of the eighteenth century - in his new studio - 1245 Vine Street Hollywood from 3 to 5 until January 13". This is accompanied by Man Ray's hand-stamped woodblock cartouche bearing the initials MR in black ink. A handsome example of this exceedingly uncommon ephemeral item - the only documentation of what we believe to be Man Ray's first Los Angeles exhibition - showing some slight age-toning, a few minor handling creases, and a tiny surface scratch along with a barely visible oily spot on the recto. While there is no mailing envelope to verify its provenance, this announcement was acquired by us along with a group of material that had belonged to the legendary local bookseller Jake Zeitlin who was a friend of Man Ray during his Los Angeles sojourn.
