(STURTEVANT). Sturtevant, Elaine Frances. NP (New York). ND (1967).: Self-Published. First Edition. 12mo. Printed Postcard. Exhibition Announcement. Very Good.. One 7 x 5 ¼" cardstock postcard printed in black and red offset recto only, no illustrations. This is the postcard self-published and mailed by Elaine Sturtevant announcing her infamous six week 1967 installation at 623 East 9th Street in Manhattan that cheekily recreated Claes Oldenburg's "The Store" of 1961. A handsome example of this exceedingly uncommon ephemeral item machine-addressed to a notable Los Angeles art collector postmarked "APR 17 '67" showing a mild diagonal soft crease through one of the corners along with some light age-toning and abrading to the verso.
