New York: Tina Lhotsky, 1978. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's stapled photo-illustrated stiff pink paper wraps.

Queen of the Mudd Club Tina L'Hotsky’s best known work. L'Hotsky lent her name to the themed parties she hosted at Mudd Club in the late 1970s (the club's 1979 Joan Crawford Mother's Day Celebration was one of her brainchildren). In addition to her notoriety as a denizen of downtown nightlife, L’Hotsky was a writer, actress and filmmaker, all while developing her own fine art practice using collage and cut-up techniques. In this DIY book, she merges original prose and found text from vintage pulp novels, newspaper articles, poetry, an autopsy report, and a chess script, with found pin-up and sexploitation photos, rendering a remarkable document of No Wave New York. Illustrated with black-and-white plates; with a photo of L'Hotsky to inside rear cover. "Lhotsky...perfected the B-movie blonde-bombshell look. She’s the missing link between transvestite Candy Darling, who in the sixties hung out at Max’s, and Dianne Brill, the queen bee who graced Palladium with her beehive blond hair and va-va-va-voom breasts" (Brad Gooch, Vanity Fair, 2013). Number 264 of 1000 copies. Original stamped price of $1.95 crossed out with new price of $2.95 inkstamped to inside of upper cover. Rubbing to spine-ends, some soiling and light staining to wraps. Very good. Item #8154
