Item Description: Ed Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1970. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 2nd Edition. 1965/1970. Second edition (originally published 1965 in an edition of 700 unnumbered copies). Soft cover. White matt wrappers with title printed in lime green on cover and spine, with glassine dust jacket. Photographs, artist's book concept and design by Ed Ruscha. Unpaginated (48 pp.), with 34 black and white illustrations printed by Anderson, Ritchie & Simon, Los Angeles. 7 x 5-1/16 inches. This second edition was limited to 3000 copies. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).]. Fine in Fine original glassine dust jacket. Produced with the same deadpan style that characterized his previous artist's books, "Twentysix Gasoline Stations" and "Various Small Fires and Milk," this book presents a distinctly American typological study of the ubiquitous post-war Los Angeles apartment buildings, here identified in the titles only by their addresses. In some cases, imposing minimalist structures dwarf the surrounding landscape; in other instances, superficial, faux-exotic themes pathetically exude a desperate attempt to create some sort of oasis for residents amid the sprawling city.
