Ed Ruscha - They Called Her StyrenePhaidon Press
Conditions: Used book. Good.
This book is an interesting object and reference to Ed Ruscha's word paintings. Some of the visual references cited by Gerry Badger in his article "Words from Home," published in AP CP BL, can be found in this book.
The book reproduces close to 600-word paintings by Ed Ruscha, assembled together in the form of a thick block, making the book an object in itself.
"Indeed, any artist playing with words – and I mean play in a serious sense – should know their Ruscha, just as any serious photographer should know their Evans." - Gerry Badger, "Words from Home" in AP CP BL.
