Velvet Underground – Band Signed ‘New York Art’ Book / 1 of 20 ‘Contributor Copies’ With 3 Extras

A rare ‘contributor copy’ of Johan Kugelberg’s highly acclaimed 2009 book The Velvet Underground: New York Art, signed by Lou Reed, Moe Tucker and Doug Yule of the Velvet Underground and Kugelberg.  Included are three extras Kugelberg made in a limited edition of 20 for contributors to the book: a special Velvets picture sleeve, concert handbill print and a color photograph of the group.

This definitive chronicle of the Velvets is filled with never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, concert posters, handwritten lyrics, clippings, interviews and contributions from band members Lou Reed, Maureen Tucker and Doug Yule.

At the time of the book’s release, a Deluxe Limited Edition of 400 copies was produced, housed in a clamshell box with gold stamped cover art derived from a rare concert poster.  This edition, which sold out immediately, included an exclusive 7″ single with previously unreleased versions of the Velvets tracks ‘Real Good Time Together’ and ‘If You Close The Door’ and a CD of these tracks, housed in an oversize stiff cardboard enclosure, hand signed by Lou Reed, Moe Tucker and Doug Yule.

Author Johan Kugelberg assembled 20 special ‘contributor copies’ with extras for people involved with the book’s publication.  His accompanying signed  note states: Many thanks for your help with the Velvets Book! This copy is one of 20 I’ve assembled in gratitude for all the kind assistance by swells like you. It contains a silk-screened picture sleeve for the 45, a C-print of the Velvets in Connecticut, and a silk-screened facsimile of the January 1966 Uptight invite.  Enjoy!

A very rare opportunity to obtain genuine Velvet Underground autographs on a limited edition version of this essential–and now rare– publication. In excellent condition throughout.
