New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, 1981. 1st Edition. Oblong octavo, publisher's photo-illustrated stiff paper wraps.
Collection of colored artist portraits by Swiss-born pop photographer Alex Kayser, with an interview by Andy Warhol: "A.W.: 'Are you trying to expose the art world?' Alex: 'That sounds exaggerated. I'm not that serious. Would you like another beer?'" Demonstrating Kayser's propensity for multimedia series, a hallmark of his work, the collection gathers 61 color-painted black-and-white plates, a veritable who's who of the late 1970s art world: Niki de Saint Phalle, Francis Bacon, Joseph Beuys, Christo, Vito Acconci, Marisol, Roy Lichtenstein, Donald Judd, David Hockney, Red Grooms, Warhol, and many more. With a biographical index. Soiling and sticker residue to upper wrap, light edgewear. Very good. Item #3677
