CRACKERS

Hollywood, CA, Heavy Industry Publications., 1969. First and only Edition 1/5000. Original white glassine dust jacket. 115 black-and-white reproductions., 240 pages. Brown chipboard flexible covers.

This is Ed Ruscha's photo-illustrated narrative featuring noted Los Angeles fashion designer Rudi Gernreich, his frequent model Leon Bing, artist Larry Bell, and Tommy Smothers as models based on Mason Williams' 1967 text 'How to Derive the Maximum Enjoyment from Crackers' (which is printed on the inside rear flap of the dust jacket). Intentionally photographed as if a collection of film stills, this project served as the basis for Ruscha's 1971 film "Premium".

Dust jacket very soiled and browned as per pic plus crinkling on top edge. The chipboard cover also browned with a crease bottom right. Photo pages very good with light browning to edges and slight soiling on bottom left of pages due to repeated page turning.
