    About The Work

    As dazzling as the Warhol show is today at the new Whitney -- only his show in the late 1970s at the old Whitney could offer this limited edition hand signed collector's item. This rare 1979 First (and only) Edition monograph is held in the original slipcase, and is hand signed by Andy Warhol and numbered 14 out of only 200 on the first front end page (see image). This collectors item features text, accompanied by 120 full page color offset lithograph bound, double sided plates on regular pages.  It was published by the Whitney Museum in collaboration with Random House, in conjunction with the exhibition held at the Whitney Museum of American Art, November 20, 1979 to January 27, 1980. Text foreword is by Tom Armstrong, the Whitney's director.

    About Andy Warhol

    From The Magazine

    • Publisher: Random House in association with the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

      Condition: Note that the exterior slipcase (the outside box) has paper loss, scuffing, scratching, agewear, peeling etc. - definitely vintage - but it served its purpose of protecting the book itself which is in very good condition, and the interior pages are clean and crisp and bright. Not ex-library; No markings whatsoever - apart from Warhol's inimitable signature. This limited edition signed and numbered 1979 vintage monograph/portfolio - First and only Edition - is quite elusive nowadays and makes a memorable and distinctive gift.
      Pencil signed and numbered from the limited edition of only 200.
