GRAPEFRUIT. 1971. USA AUGMENTED EDITION.

£65.00

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1971
13.5 x 13.5cm, unpaginated (c. 200pp) plus pictorial card covers. Augmented edition of the original ultra-rare book content of early instruction paintings – this, the paperback release, has much later material added from the artist’s cinematic pieces and also Lennon interjections. Some creases to the wrappers including the thick spine. Interestingly, reading the earlier instruction works which were presumably meant to be conceptual and event type works one can see how a contemporary proto-hippy audience might read the works as psychedelic with many references to the sky, rain, the elements – essentially a misread romanticism. Priced to reflect being just good+ to almost VG.
