[Los Angeles: Gemini G.E.L.], 1970. 7 plates & ills., [12] pp. A continuous sheet 95.6 x 23.9 cm (37-5/8 x 9-7/16 inches), printed both sides and folded crossways into 6 panels orihon style; 15.9 x 23.9 cm folded. Barbara Rose's outstanding essay describes the edition multiples that Gemini created for Oldenburg's newly invented form: "The Airflow multiple completes the process of making a graphic conception entirely actual. In this sense it is the first three-dimensional drawing. Behind the transparent plastic mold of the body of the Airflow, a photographic blow-up of Oldenburg's original sketch… can be seen. This drawing… has depicted contours and conventional shading. Yet the clear plastic relief covering is just as much drawing as the sheet of paper visible through the molded shell. Lines, instead of being depicted, are literal--by edges of the different parts of the car… involved with reflections, transparency, tactile sensuousness, scale, depth and mass." The second scan is two pages vertically. On the fourth scan you can see the only significant defect: a handwritten identification at the top and a scar created by a piece of tape or some similar assault. There is no identifcation of Gemini on the piece, but there is no question of its origin. It probably was on an envelope that no longer accompanies any of the recorded copies, as there is no address or order panel on this publication. Only 3 copies in OCLC. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order. Item #24903
