Velvet Underground – Hardcover 1st Edition “Andy Warhol’s Index Book”
A scarce first edition hardbound copy of Andy Warhol’s Index (Book,) with the holographic cover and including a still-attached Velvet Underground record. Warhol’s 1967 Index (Book) was an adventurous and accessible expression of his art, combining text and photographs with multimedia and interactive elements. Included are numerous photographs of the Velvet Underground, while Nico is listed as one of the contributors.
This example is in overall very good to excellent condition; in addition to the the fully attached and unplayed Velvet Underground record (an unreleased track titled “Noise”), the other elements are all intact and functioning, including the pop-up castle, accordion (it still squeaks loudly,) the pop up paper airplane, Chelsea Girls disc on spring, pop up cube (as usual, the original rubber band has stretched out and needs to be replaced to pop closed,) fold open nose, pop up Hunts Tomato Paste can, 8 tear out strips, and balloon (as always fused between two pages with stains from it on the preceding and following pages.) There is some minor foxing and light scuffing to the edges, but overall a very nice examples. 8 3/4″ x 11 1/4″. A wonderful Velvet Underground/Warhol artifact.
