"First Impressions explores the early graphic work of forty-six contemporary American artists who are widely recognized for their contributions to printmaking. Less well known, however, are the first prints and multiples by these painters and sculptors. This study examines their earliest publications, focusing on the first editions they produced under the auspices of a publisher or a professional printer."

RUSCHA, EDWARD
REAL ESTATE OPPORTUNITIES.
Self-published, [Los Angeles, CA].   1970.
Artist's book. Black and white. Wrappers with glassine dust jacket. Stitch bound and glued. [First edition of 4000]. Very good condition. Glassine dust jacket toned along spine and chipped at edges. Foxing along top edge. 7 x 5.5". Unpaginated. 48 pages.
"Real Estate Opportunities, like Babycakes, was published in 1970, and it bears the family resemblance shared by Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Various Small Fires, and the others; it, too, measures 7 1/16-by-5 1/2 inches, has forty-eight pages, a glassine dust jacket, and a similar three-line typographic cover. The square black-and-white photos are placed on the right-hand pages of the spreads, except for four pairs of photos, each pair depicting vacant lots in the same neighborhood in or around Los Angeles. The photographs are sober in style, like those in Twentysix Gasoline Stations and Some Los Angeles Apartments, and as in both of those books, signs are frequently featured. The inclusion of these professional "For Sale" signs is another echo of Ruscha's early life, for he initially wanted to be a commercial artist, learned sign painting techniques, and painted many commercial signs, including For Sale signs."

RUSCHA, EDWARD
NINE SWIMMING POOLS AND A BROKEN GLASS.
Self-published, [Los Angeles, CA].   1968.
Artist's book. Color and black and white. Wrappers. Glassine dust jacket. Stitch bound and glued. [First edition of 2000 copies]. Very good condition. 7 x 5.5". Unpaginated. 64 pages.
"Ruscha has referred to the blank pages in Nine Swimming Pools in characteristically prosaic terms, observing that it was the cheapest way to have the color printed and that the blank pages just fell as they may (which one might question). In addition, he has said that he could have added one or two more swimming pools at no extra cost, but wanted the book to contain nine pools rather than eleven. In connection with Nine Swimming Pools, he said that it was not just the silence of the white pages that was important, rather that the extra pages were valuable because they gave body to the book."

WEINER, LAWRENCE / RUSCHA, EDWARD
HARD LIGHT.
[Heavy Industry Publications, Hollywood, CA / Moved Pictures, New York, NY].   1978.
Artists' book. Black and white. Wrappers. Perfect bound. First edition of 3560 copies. Very good condition. 7 x 5". Unpaginated. 120 pages.
"Photographs in this book were taken by Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner, and Susan Haller. The characters were played by Shelley Chamberlain, Suzanne Chandler, and Susan Haller."
"In 1978, six years after Colored People, Ruscha made one more book, Hard Light . . ., a collaboration with Lawrence Weiner. Hard Light, along with each of Ruscha's other collaborative works--Royal Toad Test, Business Cards, and Crackers--is a narrative book, unlike any of the solo books. Royal Road Test was a deadpan, fake forensic story, Business Cards was the story of an exchange of graphics, and both Crackers and Hard Light were effectively photo-novels. Another parallel between the last two is that each has one line of dialogue, placed about three-quarters of the way through the photos, but no other text in the body of the book--in its way a Ruschaian device. . . In Hard Light the one line in more than one hundred pages of photos is: 'In the year 2000 all racecar driving will be taken over by women.'"
