"My idea of a good picture is one that's in focus and of a famous person doing something unfamous. It's being in the right place at the wrong time."--Andy Warhol
Andy Warhol's Index (Book) is a compilation of interviews, art inserts, pop-ups, photographs, recording discs, and descriptions of life at the Factory. An crucial Warhol document and an absolutely iconic publication of the psychedelic era in New York.
A super-crisp and bright copy; complete with all accoutrements; Fine+, save for the near ubiquitous flaw, in which the balloon has melted between two pages, sticking them together and slightly discoloring adjoining pages.
