Some Los Angeles apartments. Edward Ruscha.

Some Los Angeles apartments

[Los Angeles: Anderson, Richie & Simon, 1970]. Second edition of 3000 copies (with the first printing only 700 copies); square 12mo, 7" x 5.5", pp [48]; illustrated throughout by grayscale photoreproductions of the facades of apartment buildlings; fine in original printed paper covers, in near fine glassine jacket with light toning to foredge and a small closed tear in back. “A slim but essential volume. . . . As such examples of mid-century design disappear or fall into disrepair, the utilitarian clarity of these images make a book like Some Los Angeles Apartments a valuable document, and an unexpectedly moving one. What began as a perhaps ironic concept has, with the passing years, taken on the resonance of something lost to history.” (Spectrum Culture). Item #53809
