Night. Number 56

New York: Anton Perich Inc., 2010. Oversized tabloid, publisher's black-and-white newsprint (measures 17” x 22.5”).

2010 issue of Croatian-American filmmaker and artist Anton Perich’s reboot of his seminal 1970s nightlife magazine. Arriving in New York in the late 60s, Perich entered the nightlife scene as a photographer and filmmaker, documenting the many characters at such storied locales as Andy Warhol's Factory, the Chelsea Hotel, the Roxy, Max’s Kansas City, Mudd Club, and Danceteria. Inspired by Warhol’s Interview (where he was a regular contributor), Perich founded NIGHT in 1978. The oversized tabloid featured photo-collages and dramatic full-page spreads alongside hot takes, poetry, interviews with artists, actresses, filmmakers, fashion designers, models, and more. Perich abandoned the project in late 1980 to work full-time as a painter upstate, but has intermittently revived the magazine, with its last installment dating from 2011. This issue, from 2010, contains an interview with Iggy Pop, downtown journalist Victor Bockris's interview with Warhol and William Burroughs, a short one-act play by Factory regular Robert Heide, pieces on Billy Name and Clayton Patterson, Perich's large format photos of beautiful people, including a 1972 portrait of Candy Darling to the back cover, and more. Illustrated throughout in black-and-white. Folded in half horizontally as issued. Fine. Item #8115
