Artforum, volume V , number 1, September 1966. Surrealism issue, with cover design by Edward Ruscha, "Surrealism soaped and scrubbed"
Los Angeles: Artforum, 1966. The justifiably famous Surrealism issue of Artforum magazine with its great cover by Ed Ruscha. It sold out three weeks after publication. Articles by the following writers: Max Kozloff, Lucy R. Lippard, Ronald Hunt, Robert Rosenblum, Toby Mussman, Roger Shattuck, William Rubin, Whitney Halstead, Kurt von Meier, Sidney Tillim, Annette Michelson, Nicholas Slonimsky, and Nicolas Calas. **This copy is in much better than usual shape and is near fine, EXCEPT that the original subscriber, and artist, had the practice of marking the volume and number on the top right corner of the front cover; please see scan. This is item M9 in Edward Ruscha: editions 1959-1989 (Minneapolis: Walker Art Center, 1999). This is my last copy suitable for display. I have a few complete copies with badly faded or worn covers at much lower prices for those who want only the content. Please inquire directly. Most other issues of Artforum available at more modest prices than this one. Please see my long runs, as well. **Free domestic shipping with direct order. Item #69001.5
