Illustrated with color and b&w plates throughout. VERY GOOD condition: The front cover has some wear to its corner tips, a small pea-size scrape, and a very faint cup ring (the ring is faintly visible on the actual cover but does not show up in the photos); the rear cover has a light crease to its upper corner, wear to its corner tips, some thin scratches, and some soiling; the spirals are in great shape; overall the covers are very bright and solid, with brilliant art on the front cover. Internally, there is a previous owner's name at the top of the inside rear cover (Leslie Selcow, a San Francisco Art Collector and a docent at the SFMOMA); there is some neat underlining of text on 5 pages (4 of the pages have 4 or less lines underlined, 1 page has multiple lines underlined, a couple check marks and a couple brackets); otherwise the inner pages are fine, tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A solid, very presentable copy of this RARE art exhibition monograph. Long before there was BANKSY there was HARING. This catalog, of his first one man show, is IMPORTANT in the history of art. About KEITH HARING (from Wikipedia): ******Keith Allen Haring (May 4, 1958 ¿ February 16, 1990) was an American artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s by expressing concepts of birth, death, sexuality, and war. Haring's work was often heavily political and his imagery has become a widely recognized visual language of the 20th century. HARING had his FIRST EXCLUSIVE EXHIBITION in the TONY SHAFRAZI GALLERY in 1982.******. Bookseller Inventory #
