"Moriyama's legendary xerox book, with photographs taken during his 1971 trip to New York, individually assembled into books on a rented Canon photocopier in a nondescript storefront rather than a gallery, almost as performance art, with silkscreen covers in two variants; the customer chose. No two copies are identical and fewer than 100 were assembled. This copy SIGNED in Japanese and English by Moriyama in an early hand. A rare example, possibly unique, with both silkscreens used: the self-portrait American Flag motif on the front cover, and the airplane design on the inside of the covers. Area of loss at the top of the spine, chip to the cover at the spine heel, internally fine with a nice, almost varnished tonality (some examples are blotchy); a good copy in silkscreened wrappers of one of the great Japanese rarities, and a highspot of the photocopy machine as a conduit for art." (About the 1974th original ed.)

Faksimile Edition des legendären, in einer Auflage von nur 100 Exemplaren erschienen Künstler-Buch, damals - wie hier in der 250er Auflage - aus Fotokopien zusammen gestellt und klammergeheftet. Auch diese Ausgabe, die in zwei verschiedenen Covern - 'Stars and stripes' und 'Airplane' - erhältlich ist, wird sicher bald eine Rarität sein. (Natürlich nicht so teuer, wie das aktuell für 65.000 USD angebotene Original!)
