About this Item: Edward Ruscha, Los Angeles, California., 1971. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. No Jacket. 2nd Edition. The second edition of a work originally published in 1966. Accordion-fold reproductions of black and white photographs of the buildings, with their printed addresses. White paper card covers with the title: The Sunset Strip, printed in silver on the spine and front cover. The spine shows a partial light crease, and a little very light tanning. In the silver mylar-covered slipcase with white paper top and bottom edges. The front edges of the slipcase show small splits. An exceptionally fine copy of a very fragile book. Mentioned in Andrew Roth's: Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century. Ed Ruscha had a retrospective exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, in 2006. This is Ruscha's most famous book, in part because of the differences between the first and the second editions. In the first, the last photo could not be fit on the page, so the page was extended to accommodate the full picture and the page was folded to preserve the flush edge. Ruscha however was unhappy with this solution, and in the second edition he made sure that the last photo was cropped to fit the regular page and eliminate the fold. See "The Works of Ed Ruscha" (1982); p. 169. Seller Inventory # ABE-782003020

About this Item: 1966, 1966. RUSCHA, EDWARD. Every Building on the Sunset Strip. Accordion fold artist's book illustrated in b&w. 8vo, wraps in a new cloth box. 1966(1970). First Edition as dated 1966, but not a true first. Photomontage showing contiguously every building on both sides of the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Approximately 22 feet long when folded out to its full length. Ruscha identifies street numbers and the names of cross streets. The folded accordion paper of Ruscha's "Sunset Strip" has an extra 2" flap of paper folded over behind the last page of a real first edition. The final Jaguar building is pictured alone on this last half page. All other editions are cut evenly on the final page, including later printings that say "first edition" in front. Apparently the printer made an error in estimating the proper folding length of the printed paper the first time, but this was corrected in subsequent editions. Seller Inventory # 121374

A very good copy in white printed wraps with some darkening to the spine; foil covered slipcase is lightly worn with a few small splits, else very good.

Architect Peter Hoyt's copy with his ownership signature on the inside. Peter Hoyt was part of the Learning from Las Vegas team that studied under Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown and eventually produced one of the most important and controversial books of architectural theory published in the twentieth century. When the team went to Las Vegas in the fall of 1968, they flew first to Los Angeles and met with Ed Ruscha along with many other LA notables by way of Esther McCoy. The Venturis felt that the way Ruscha was looking at the LA landscape would be helpful in their understanding of the Las Vegas strip. They even hired a helicopter to photograph Las Vegas from the air, looking at patterns of use in much the same manner as Ruscha approached photographing Los Angeles. Ruscha's books on gas stations, parking lots and other spaces were very important influences on the visual aspects of the Learning From Las Vegas study. Seller Inventory # 28842

About this Item: Self-published., Los Angeles., 1966. pp. 52, comprised of a single narrow accordian-folded sheet (760.7 cm when extended). Two continuous strips of monochrome illustrations from photographs, across top and bottom of pages. First edition, limited to 1,000 copies, with the small folded flap at the end of the book. ÒThe Sunset Strip satisfied one of Ruscha's early ambitions: ÔIn Oklahoma City, I delivered newspapers riding along on my bicycle with my dog . I dreamed about making a model of all the houses on that route, a tiny but detailed model that I could study like an architect standing over a table and plotting a cityÕ. As a result of his subsequent fascination with the Sunset Strip, this unrealized youthful idea resurfaced in a different form. The accordian-fold structure of the book was an appropriate format for Ruscha's intended depiction of the famous Hollywood thoroughfare as a series of two-dimensional storefront facades, like those of a Western townÓ. [Engberg & Phillpot - Ed Ruscha Editions, B4]. Original publisher's printed wrappers with printed title in silver ink on front and spine, original reflective silver mylar-covered slipcase. Faint crease to spine, and usual gum residue to front and rear edge of wrappers, otherwise a very good copy. Seller Inventory # 837

About this Item: [Edward Ruscha], (Los Angeles), 1966. Condition: Near fine overall. First edition. First state of this quintessentially Los Angeles book, and one of the great photobooks of all time, in exceptional condition. Ruscha's fourth book, and arguably his finest, captures the Sunset Strip at a particular moment in time. A monumental and continuous accordion-fold scroll that opens to more than 25 feet, Ruscha documents - as the title suggests - the entirety of the Strip, with even numbered addresses running along the top the page and odd facing opposite along the bottom. "The effect is less like the fluid cinematic pan [.] than a series of jolting jump cuts [.] a ragged progression of gas stations, motels, apartment houses, parking lots, strip-malls, and honky-tonk signage" (Parr 182).A beautiful example of a notoriously fragile production. 7'' x 5.5''. Accordion-fold printed recto only and mounted in printed wrappers, with short extra final flap. Housed in original silver Mylar foil-covered slipcase. Lacking the exceedingly rare belly band. From an unstated edition of 1000 copies. Spine lightly toned, with a faint crease. Some unobtrusive glue offsetting to cover folds from slipcase. Else bright, sharp, clean, and sound throughout. In an excellent example of the slipcase, with only the tiniest split to one end, but almost none of the endemic rubbing to the foil. Seller Inventory # 1107

About this Item: Edward Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1966. First edition, second issue. Small octavo, original stiff self-wrappers, original slipcase. Inscribed by the artist on the title page, "For John Ed Ruscha." One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments with black-and-white photographs of every building on the sunset strip. Fine in a fine slipcase. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example. In the 1960s, Ed Ruscha more or less reinvented the artist's book. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d'artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply through photographs and text, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. The 27-foot length of the accordion-folded Every Building on the Sunset Strip affords the viewer two continuous photographic views of the mile and a half section of this landmark stretch of Sunset, one for each side of one of the city's landmark thoroughfare" (The Getty Research Institute).

About this Item: Self-Published, Los Angeles. 1966 (1970). Leporello Wrappers in Slipcase. Condition: Near Fine. Second Printing 1/5000. One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments extending to 296 ½" in length housed in a white paper and silver Mylar-over-cardboard slipcase. "Every Building on the Sunset Strip" is Ed Ruscha's innovative 1966 photographic study that pictures sequentially each architectural facade on both the North and South sides of the fabled Sunset Strip from 8101 - the still extant Jaguar dealership - to 9156 - the late, great Schwab's Pharmacy. Pandora's Box lives! A bright white, most handsome example of the 1970 second printing (entry B4 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999", and whose 1966 edition is cited on pages 142-143 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 198-199 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 182-185 of "The Book of 101 Books") limited to five thousand unnumbered copies additionally BOLDLY SIGNED "Ed Ruscha" in black ink across the top of the slipcase showing a thin margin of adhesive transfer along the front and back of the covers at the spine as is typical of this printing. The slipcase's silver mylar overlay is shiny but lightly scuffed, there is some trivial soiling along the top and bottom edges, and some chipping and separations to the white paper covering at some of the corners of the joints. The publisher's exceedingly fragile and uncommon unprinted white paper wraparound band issued only with the second edition is laid in. It has been priced accordingly.

About this Item: Edward Ruscha, Los Angeles, 1966. First edition, second issue. Small octavo, original stiff self-wrappers, original slipcase. Association copy, inscribed by Ruscha to his aunt, "For Aunt Carol Ed Ruscha." One continuous accordion-fold page composed of glued paper segments with black-and-white photographs of every building on the sunset strip. Near fine in a very good slipcase. An exceptional association. In the 1960s, Ed Ruscha more or less reinvented the artist's book. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d'artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply through photographs and text, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. The 27-foot length of the accordion-folded Every Building on the Sunset Strip affords the viewer two continuous photographic views of the mile and a half section of this landmark stretch of Sunset, one for each side of one of the city's landmark thoroughfare" (The Getty Research Institute). Roth 101; Parr & Badger, Photobook II. Seller Inventory # 1012
