Rose, Aaron & Christian Strike, Editors. With Essays by Alex Baker, Thom Collins, Jeffrey Deitch, Rene deGuzman, Carlo McCormick & Jocko Weyland. BEAUTIFUL LOSERS: CONTEMPORARY ART AND STREET CULTURE - LIMITED HARDBOUND EDITION WITH INSTALLATION PHOTOGRAPHS. New York. 2004 (2007).: Iconoclast Productions in Association with D.A.P. (Distributed Art Publishers), 4to. Cloth in Dust Jacket. Exhibition Catalog. As New/As New. 288pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Stephen Kinder Design Partnership. With a biography for each artist. "The greatest cultural accomplishments in history have never been the result of the brainstorms of marketing men, corporate focus groups, or any homogenized methods; they have always happened organically. More often than not, these manifestations have been the result of a few like-minded people coming together to create something new and original for no other purpose than a common love of doing it. In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, began their careers in just such a way. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, such as skateboarding, graffiti, street fashion, and independent music, artists began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Many had no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world. They learned their crafts through practice, trial and error, and good old-fashioned innovation. Not since the Beat Generation have we seen a group of creative individuals with such a unified aesthetic sense and varied cultural facets. The world of art has been greatly affected by their accomplishments as have the worlds of fashion, music, literature, film, and, ironically, athletics. Over the years, the group has matured, and many have become more Establishment-oriented; but no matter, their independent spirit has remained steadfast. Beautiful Losers is a retrospective celebration of this spirit, with hundreds of artworks by over two dozen artists." This extraordinary catalogue was published in conjunction with the 2004 touring exhibition "Beautiful Losers", and is a colorful compendium of popular culture related artwork, graphics, and photos. The contributing artists are divided into two historical categories - the "Roots and Influences" who are Jean-Michel Basquiat, Neil Blender, Larry Clark, R. Crumb, Glen E. Friedman, Futura, Keith Haring, Wes Humpston, Ari Marcopoulos, Raymond Pettibon, Brian Schroeder (Pushead), Craig R. Stecyk III, and Andy Warhol; and the "Beautiful Losers", consisting of Thomas Campbell, Cynthia Connolly, Brian Donnelly (KAWS), Cheryl Dunn, Shepard Fairey, Phil Frost, Mark Gonzales, Evan Hecox, Jo Jackson, Todd James, James Jarvis, Andy Jenkins, Chris Johanson, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Harmony Korine, Geoff McFetridge, Barry "Twist "McGee, Ryan McGinley, Ryan McGinniss, Mike Mills, Stephen Powers (ESPO), Terry Richardson, Clare E. Rojas, Romon Kimin Yang (Rostarr), Ed Templeton, and Tobin Yelland. Each of the "...Losers" has created an original one or two page full color spread to this fabulous document. This example is from the curators' extremely limited, revised hardbound printing from 2007 that includes an additional sixteen pages of color photographic documentation of the exhibition's installation at several of the venues - not found in any previous edition. A pristine copy of this uncommon item.

(SMITH, JACK). Jordan, Mary, Director. JACK SMITH AND THE DESTRUCTION OF ATLANTIS (DVD). New York: Arthouse Films, 2007. 8vo. NTSC DVD in Plastic Case. Documentary Film. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 95 minutes + extras, in color. "Perhaps America's most important artist from the last fifty years, Jack Smith is simultaneously hailed as the godfather of performance art, a groundbreaking photographer, and the 'William Blake of film'. His utopian ideals, artistic processes and bejeweled artworks left no generation untouched since, and became essential influences to contemporary art superstars like Andy Warhol, Federico Fellini, and Matthew Barney. In her feature-length film debut, director Mary Jordan combines Smith's rare and unseen films and photographs with rare audio recordings, acting appearances, and other relics squeezed from Smith's vaulted archives. Commentaries from art luminaries, critics and Smith's friends and enemies such as George Kuchar, Ken Jacobs, Tony Conrad, Sylvere Lotringer, Judith Malina, Jonas Mekas, Mario Montez, Ronald Tavel, John Waters, John Zorn, Agosto Machado, Andrew Sarris, Ari Roussimoff, Billy Name, Ela Troyano, Gary Indiana, George Kuchar, Helen Gee, Henry Hills, Maria Montez, Andrew Sarris, Holly Woodlawn, Ira Cohen, Ivan Galietti, Jerry Tartaglia, John Matturri, John Vaccaro, Lawrence Rinder, Mary Woronov, Mike Kelley, Nayland Blake, Nick Zedd, Richard Foreman, Robert Heide, Robert Wilson , Taylor Mead, Tommy Lanigan-Schmidt, Uzi Parnes, and William Niederkorn) intercut Smith himself proffering condemnations of capitalism, critics and institutional-art "gatekeepers". Jordan also delves into Smith's tenuous relationship with Andy Warhol - who adopted Smith's ideas and actors in his own work (including Smith's "Superstars" concept), his vilification of New American cinema pioneer Jonas Mekas, and other previously undocumented biographical topics. From the Whitney to the Louvre, Smith is acknowledged as one of America's most influential artists, yet his legacy remains at the edges of obscurity. Pure in his artistic pursuits, Smith smashed head-on into the politics intersecting creativity, capitalism, and meaning in contemporary art. Since his 1989 death, Smith's work has been rarely publicly displayed. Still his influence pervades contemporary art and pop-culture today. This documentary portrait pays homage to New York's ultimate anti-hero and the original King of the Underground".

(VAN HAMERSVELD, JOHN). Van Hamersveld, John. Dave Clucas, Editor. JOHN VAN HAMERSVELD: MY ART, MY LIFE - SIGNED HARDBOUND EDITION LIMITED TO TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY COPIES. Signed and Numbered by the Artist. South Bend, IN: St. Augustine's Press, 2010. First Edition 1/250 Deluxe. 8vo. Cloth in Illustrated Jacket. Artist Autobiography. As New/As New. 234pp, illustrated in b&w and color. Artist turned Art Director John Van Hamersveld is responsible for some of the most iconic graphic images to emerge from California in the sixties and seventies. Raised in the surfing community of Palos Verdes, his teenage adventures with Mickey Dora, Dale Velzy, John Severson and childhood pal Rick Griffin led to his becoming the graphic designer for "Surfer" and "Surf Guide" Magazines at the height of the "Gidget" and Beach Party craze. In 1964 he created the timeless Day-Glo one-sheet for Bruce Brown's genre-defining film "The Endless Summer". After a stint at the famed Chouinard Art Institute, Van Hamersveld went on to design the Pinnacle Concerts posters for Jimi Hendrix, Cream, The Velvet Underground, and many others as well as create striking album packaging for The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, The Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour", The Jefferson Airplane's "Crown of Creation", Bob Dylan's "Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid", The Grateful Dead's "Skeletons From the Closet", and most notably The Rolling Stones' classic "Exile on Main Street". "My Art / My Life" confidently recounts Van Hamersveld's autobiographical experiences alongside many of the most interesting Surfing, Art (lots of Andy Warhol anecdotes!), and Rock 'n' Roll personalities of the period - albeit in a sometimes frustratingly disjointed spelling, grammar and continuity be damned manner - and establishes once and for all his place in the pantheon of graphic design history. A pristine example of the hardbound edition limited to two hundred and fifty copies BOLDLY SIGNED, NUMBERED (64/250) AND DATED 12/1/10 in black ink on the front colophon, as issued. 1-58731-523-8 Inventory Number: 021081

(BEARD, PETER). Beard, Peter & Owen Edwards. Nejma Beard & David Fahey, Editors. PETER BEARD: THE ART EDITION - NUMBERED AND SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER. Signed and Numbered by the Photographer. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2006. First Edition 1/2250 Deluxe. Elephant Folio. 1/2 Leather over Boards, Boxed. Photography Monograph. As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 616pp), profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, German and French. Art Direction and Design by Ruth Ansel. One of the most lavish books published to date on the work of a single photographer, Benedikt Taschen's sumptuous, already out of print 2006 monograph on Peter Beard rivals Helmut Newton's "Sumo" in both scale and grandeur. "Photographer, collector, diarist, and writer of books Peter Beard has fashioned his life into a work of art; the illustrated diaries he kept from a young age evolved into a serious career as an artist and earned him a central position in the international art world. He was painted by Francis Bacon, painted on by Salvador Dali, and made diaries with Andy Warhol; he toured with Truman Capote and the Rolling Stones, created books with Jacqueline Onassis and Mick Jagger - all of whom are brought to life, literally and figuratively, in his work. As a fashion photographer, he took Vogue stars like Veruschka to Africa and brought new ones - most notably Iman - back to the U.S. with him. Spilling out over the pages of this massive tome, Peter Beard's collages are reproduced as a group for the first time at the size they have always meant to be seen, some as foldouts. Hundreds of smaller-scale works and diaries fill the remaining spreads - magnified to show every detail, from Beard's meticulous handwriting and old-master-inspired drawings to stones and bones and bits of animals pasted to the page. All color illustrations are color-separated and reproduced in Pan4C, the finest reproduction technique available today, which provides unequalled intensity and color range". This elephant folio sized book is bound in half leather over boards, housed in a clamshell box, and is accompanied by a wooden viewing stand that is reminiscent of an African headrest. Its companion volume: "PB2" contains an image index with captions for all the pictures reproduced in the main book, personal photos and early work of the artist, an interview with the artist by Steven M. L. Aronson, a facsimile reprint of Beard's 1993 handwritten essay from the sold-out first issue of "Blind Spot" magazine, an extensive bibliography, and an exhibition history. A pristine example unopened in the publisher's original printed shipping carton, as issued.

As New/No Jacket - As Issued. 85 minutes + extras, in color and b&w. "The Cool School" is an object lesson in how to build an art scene from scratch, and what to avoid in the process. Narrated by actor Jeff Bridges, the film focuses on the seminal Ferus Gallery, which groomed the Los Angeles art scene from a loose band of idealistic beatniks into a coterie of competitive, often brilliant artists, including Ed Kienholz, Ed Ruscha, Craig Kauffman, Wallace Berman, Ed Moses and Robert Irwin. The Ferus also served as launching point for New York imports Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein, as well as leading to the first Pop Art show and Marcel Duchamp's first retrospective. What was lost and gained is tied up in a complex web of egos, passions, money, and art. This is how L.A. came of age". During its ten year life, Ed Kienholz and Walter Hopps' visionary Ferus Gallery was home to such influential California artists as Robert Alexander, John Altoon, Billy Al Bengston, Wallace Berman, Streeter Blair, Bruce Conner, Jay DeFeo, Richard Diebenkorn, Llyn Foulkes, Sonia Gechtoff, Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, James Kelly, Edward Kienholz, Frank Lobdell, John Mason, Edward Moses, Richard Pettibon, Kenneth Price, Philip Rich, Arthur Richer, Richards Ruben, Edward Ruscha, Paul Sarkisian, Hassel Smith, and Julius Wasserstein. It was also the site of Los Angeles exhibitions by Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Ellsworth Kelly, Kurt Schwitters, and Joseph Cornell. Morgan Neville's 2007 documentary presciently tells its tale by combining cool vintage footage with contemporary interviews with the likes of Kienholz, Hopps, Irving Blum, Frank Gehry, Dennis Hopper, Ruscha, Bengston, Bell, Moses, Price, John Baldessari, and Dean Stockwell. Also included are short features on Walter Hopps, Ed Kienholz, and a Ferus artists reunion. A pristine copy of this DVD in letterbox format still in the manufacturer's shrinkwrapped plastic case.

(WARHOL, ANDY) (WALLOWITCH, JOHN). Wallowitch, John. THIS IS JOHN WALLOWITCH!!! - WITH A PHOTOBOOTH COLLAGE COVER BY ANDY WARHOL (LP). New York. ND (1964).: Serenus Records Corp. , First Edition. Large Square 4to. LP in Illustrated Album Cover. Fine/Very Good -. One black vinyl long-playing phonograph record in a plain paper inner-sleeve, inside a 12 x 12" album cover printed black and white offset recto, and two color offset verso. Design by Irwin Rosenhouse. Cover Photograph by Andy Warhol. This is the very first recording issued by the late pianist, composer and lyricist John Wallowitch. Best known as one half of the Manhattan cabaret performing duo Wallowitch and Ross, his songs have been recorded by the likes of Tony Bennett, Blossom Dearie, Dixie Carter, Doc Severinson, and many others. He was also the brother of the late photographer Ed Wallowitch, a confidant and early Factory assistant to Andy Warhol. Art directed by noted New York designer Irwin Rosenhouse, Warhol collaged a series of photobooth images for its cover that capture the suited Wallowitch from his chest up to his mouth, cutting off any other identifying facial features (as well as making a non-issue of the pianist's baldness). The recordings consist of twelve show tunes and standards including "Swanee", "I'll Remember April", "Fly Me to the Moon", and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco". The jacket is stamped "Stereo" on the verso in black ink, and is remarkably clean and fresh. A most handsome copy of this uncommon, early Andy Warhol item (entry number twenty-six in Paul Marechal's "Andy Warhol: The Record Covers 1949-1987 - Catalogue Raisonné", and also catalogued on page 48 of Guy Schraenen's "Vinyl: Records and Covers by Artists") that predates his "The Velvet Underground And Nico" album cover by two years showing two small areas of insect damage along the lower edge of the front cover. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: The album's catalogue number SEP 2005 is printed prominently on the rear cover, leading some less well-versed observers to speculate that this is a reprint issued in September of the year 2005. It is not - it is the first and only vinyl issue released in 1964. Inventory Number: 018334

(VISIONAIRE). Gan, Stephen, James Kaliardos & Cecilia Dean, Editors. VISIONAIRE NO. 17: GOLD (1996) - DISPLAY COPY. New York: Visionaire Publishing, 1996. First Edition 1/2500. 4to. Loose Plates in a Portfolio. Fashion Quarterly. Very Good -/No Jacket - As Issued. Individual illustrated sheets laid into an embossed gold paper over boards portfolio, profusely illustrated in monochrome and duotone. Designed by Gregory Foley and Florentino J. Pamintuan. Published in an edition of two thousand, five hundred copies, this is the seventeenth installment of everyone's favorite long-running luxe fashion quarterly, Visionaire. "For some time we had imagined a gilded issue-heavily embellished, incredibly ornate. "Gold" gave us the perfect opportunity to go for baroque. The cover of the issue was hologrammed, embossed, and foil stamped, all on an already solid-gold background. Up until this point, it was one of the most extravagant and delirious issues we had ever created. There were seven pages of Philip Taaffe's gold stars foil stamped onto vellum, which ran an average of a dollar per page - a slight extravagance considering we had at least another fifty pages to fill. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin's fashion photographs featured gold-foil stamping on top of four-color prints - crazy in theory but even more so in practice, when sometimes the only foil-stamped element was the stud earring in the model's ear! Cecilia tracked down OrigamiUSA, who folded a gold-paper goldfish for each issue, and Todd Oldham contributed actual gilded-metal halos. Such frivolities came thanks to this issue's sponsor, the Japanese department store Beams". A handsome unnumbered hors commerce example of this uncommon issue marked "Display Copy" by the publisher showing a small scrape and a torn corner joint to the gold portfolio along with some light overall wear and handling to the box and contents. It has been priced accordingly.
