Book Description Ed Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1970. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 2nd Edition. 1964/1970. Second edition (originally published 1964 in an edition of 400 numbered copies). Soft cover. White matt wrappers with title printed in black on cover and spine, with glassine dust jacket. Photographs, artist's book concept and design by Ed Ruscha. Unpaginated (48 pp.), with 15 yellow-toned plates, and one black and white plate, printed by Anderson, Ritchie & Simons, 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 Near Fine dust jacket (light toning to the rear panel and 1/4-inch closed tear at top of rear panel). A bright, tight copy. The second of Ruscha's revolutionary artist's books, Various Small Fires and Milk delivers a sequence of fifteen images depicting lit matches, cigarettes, a gas stove burner, a blowtorch, a highway flare, etc., followed by the book's final, incongruous and delightful plate: a single glass of milk. Challenging the logic of classification systems, while continuing his efforts to redefine the role of photography in conceptual art, this artist's book stands as one of the defining contributions to the medium.
