Andy Warhol's Exposures - Signed First Printing - SOLD

WARHOL, Andy. Andy Warhol's Exposures.

New York: Andy Warhol Books/Grosset & Dunlap, 1979. First Printing (stated). Signed by Warhol "To Margaret and [?]" on half title. Folio (11.5" x 9.5"). In original dustjacket over black cloth boards with silver lettering to spine. Signature consistent with other samples from this period. Unclipped dustjacket shows a 1/4" clean tear at top front and light shelfwear, with some shallow dampstaining to interior at head and tail of spine extending a couple inches out in either direction--unnoticeable on the exterior except for some very faint discoloration at tail of spine. Boards are square with some bumping top fore-edge corners. First gathering is a bit loose at top stitch and the book opens easily to a few places where previously laid flat, but binding is holding soundly. Pages are unmarked.

Warhol writes in the Introduction, "I have Social Disease. I have to go out every night." And so he did, armed with his new small, auto-focus 35mm cameras, a tape recorder, film and batteries, and snacks from a local health food shop. Exposures is a glimpse into Warhol's expansive social life, capturing and profiling the stars and major players in the world of art, music, fashion, theater, politics, and other players in the social scenes he moved through.
