[L.A.? The artist? 1970?] Artist's book, INSCRIBED. 600 copies. 24 photographs juxtapose sterile hotel rooms in Los Angeles with messier indoor and oudoor scenes, e.g., a hilltop path overhung by a tree marked X, an action painting of Heinz ketchup on a white tablecloth, a deposit of 2 or 3 dozen empty bottles amid other detritus. The statement, written in blue ink, reads: "Note: the newspaper shown in one of the ‘pieces' is only a marginal statement and is not meant as any kind of blanket over-simplification for the entire book. A Ruppersberg." Comparison with another copy bearing a similar text confirms that it is a holograph, not printed; it must have been important to the artist, at least for certain recipients of the book. [28 leaves.] White cover with white plastic spiral binding. 15.9 x 20.5 cm. Very pale moisture stain at lower left corner and slight rippling at top and bottom edges from moisture. Shallow bumps at front corners. Very good. **Free domestic shipping with direct order. Item #27905.1
