Warhol's exuberant artist's book is filled with surprises. The following items are accounted for: 1) castle pop-up in fine condition; 2) red accordion (attached at both ends but silent now); 3) biplane in fine conditon; 4) Chelsea Girls disc in fine condition, but lacking spring mounting; 5) the pages containing the folded polyhedron have been opened, and it is attached to the lefthand page near the gutter with a black thread and a round, white sticker; 6) Lou Reed record in its mounting, but detached from binding; 7) multi-colored, 3-panel nose pop-up in fine condition; 8) Hunt's Tomato Paste pop-up in fine condition; 9) 6 (of 8) Andy Warhol "Surprise" tabs present. That page bears a shadow in its original size and shape of the silver balloon that was laid into each copy as part of the production. That balloon, long since melted, as usual, now partially seals together the following doublespread of a cityscape. If a postcard ever was present, it is gone now. The rest of the book consists mostly of high-contrast, black-and-white photographs of Warhol's crowd and events in The Factory. Silver on black "Brillo" design on stiff paper covers.. [76] pp. 27.9 x 21.5 cm. Covers and edges less worn than usual. Another copy available at $350. Accompanying photo is that copy. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.
