Gilbert & George: Dark Shadow. Art For All & Nigel Greenwood Inc., London, 1976. 288 pp. Octavo (small size). Edition of 2000 signed and numbered copies. Hardbound in gilt debossed boards. No jacket as issued. Black-and-white reproductions.



When he was just fourteen years old, this was superstar art dealer Jay Jopling's very first art purchase (at the Anthony d'Offay Gallery). It contains eight chapters entitled "Gordon's Gin", "Dark Shadow", "Broken Hearts", Bloody Life", "Balls Bar", "Bad Thoughts", "Inca Pisco", and "Human Bondage" - each of which consists of sixteen pages of text alternating with sixteen photographically based images. Equal parts Bukowski, Ruscha and Dylan Thomas, it is thoroughly tongue in cheek, giving lie to the image of conceptual art as a cerebral and dry genre. Fantastic.

Near Fine; some rippling to cloth.
