The Important Photography Book from Pop Artist Edward Ruscha

    Edward Ruscha. Every Building on the Sunset Strip. Los Angeles: Edward Ruscha, 1966.

    First edition, second issue. Oblong octavo. Accordion-fold panorama featuring two strips of photographs of both sides of the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, folding out to approximately 27 feet.

    Publisher's white wrappers in a silver foil-covered slipcase. Light wear to edges of foil, light crease to spine. Overall, an excellent and bright copy of this desirable title.

    This second issue was limited to 5,000 copies. Originally published in 1966 in an edition of 1,000 copies, identifiable only by an extra two-inch flap at the end of the last folded page, the result of the printer's miscalculation.
