Re: [BKARTS] Opportunity for a limited edition bookwork



Picturing Ed: Jerry McMillan’s Photographs of Ed Ruscha 1958-1972

(Santa Monica, Craig Krull Gallery/Smart Art Press, 2004, $20.00 paperback)

This is a limited edition volume of early photographs of the now famous Ed
Ruscha as a young artist and friend of Jerry McMillan, who was close enough
to Ed to use him as a model at times and in turn do favors for Ed. There are
photographs of Ed with his new artist books balanced on his head (the cover
photo), in his navy reserve uniform, with two women in a bed as a wedding
gift to his wife, with friend Mason Williams, as a cowboy, with friend Joe
Goode on horseback, working on his cover for Artforum, and so much more that
is historic for anyone interested in Ed Ruscha as an artist, a person, a
celebrity in the artistic universe!

Included is an essay by McMillan, a close friend of Ruscha’s who came from
Oklahoma City with him to go to Chouinard Art School, as well as sharing a
house, a venue for their studios, and a deep friendship until this day.. The
black and white photos are now vintage and document a shy but ever-ready
artist who is willing to pose for his photographer friend, Jerry McMillan. A
slice of history not to miss! This book will NOT be reprinted. The edition
is 1200 and is recommended for all contemporary art collections, especially
those involved with artist books.
