Twentysix Gasoline Stations

Ed Ruscha


The Cunningham Press, Alhambra, 1969. Third Edition. Softcover with glassine dust jacket. [48]pp., 5.5 x 7 inches

Fine. Glassine shows slight age toning to spine and minimal edgewear. 

Ruscha's famed photoseries of gasoline stations between Los Angeles and Oklahoma City, credited by many as the first modern artist's book. Illustrations in black-and-white, with text naming only the brands and locations of the stations photographed. Rare to find both book and glassine so well-maintained. From an edition of 3000.
