Book Condition: Very Good+
Signed: Signed by Author(s)
Full-color real photo postcard of Warhol (4.5x3.5 inches, showing him taking a picture, "Studio 54" in faint pencil on the verso); with dance card printed in b/w (6.75x3.75 inches), the recto with "Carnet de Bal" printed above a harlequin figure on a dance floor, the upper margin signed indistinctly "Andy" and with his phone number (475-5550), the verso with 15 printed lines with repeated Warhol signatures and markings in pencil -- the signatures with much variation and dashed off very quickly, a few are clearly signed "Andy" while others are more gestural. The card somewhat creased and stained, the pencil holder detached (but present), and the original pencil missing. Sold with a Studio 54 matchbook and drink chip (both a little worn). Purchased at auction in NYC, their consignor writes: "Having been the nightly denizen of Studio 54, I, among other 'glitterati,' caught the attention of Andy Warhol's keen eye. Having come from the Le Jardin Club, where that evening cartes de ball were given out, when Mr. W. asked to join me in a dance, I asked him to sign my dance card. Reaching in his pocket, he pulled out his eyebrow pencil, hence the brownish smear. When that broke, Mr. W used the pencil attached to the card and much to my delight and surprise, filled out every line, so representational of his custom of repetition. he also noted his phone number at the top. I was often, at various events, photographed by him and the favor was returned. The smiling photo of him taken by me is probably one of the rare smiling photos of Andy Warhol. He was always content to see me and this smiling photo is a fine memory of this most talented gentleman.". Bookseller Inventory # JC14217
