New York: Museum of Modern Art, 1970. Oblong (8 x 14 inches). 221 pages. Black-and-white and color illustrations. Original flexible plastic cover, a sculptural design flourish enhanced further by the pink decorated endpapers. A very good copy of this scarce, fragile book, with some light soiling to covers, endpapers slightly separated as often, otherwise about as fine an example as one is likely to find given the cover material, and scarcer still signed. Item #405683
FIRST EDITION, SIGNED by Oldenburg on the half-title. This major retrospective exhibition was held 25 September to 23 November 1969. The catalogue designed by Chermayeff & Geismar Associates is a work of art in itself, from its innovative cover proudly highlighting the work of curator Barbara Rose, to the profusion of illustrations, both documentary of Oldenburg and his artistic peers and representative of his large body of work.
