Twenty-Six Gasoline Stations
A few weeks ago I wrote a feature about the role of gas stations in literature. A rather notable omission has just been pointed out to me by Peter from the UK, who wrote…. “I enjoyed this piece but you omitted a classic of the genre: Ed Ruscha’s 1962 book of photographs, Twenty-Six Gasoline Stations. Now rare and expensive, it is considered a landmark in late 20th century photography.”
He’s right – the top price for a signed 1963 first edition of Twenty-Six Gasoline Stations on AbeBooks is $35,000. Peter, thanks for the tip.
