RUSCHA, EDWARD. Every Building on the Sunset Strip. Accordion fold artist's book illustrated in b&w. 8vo, wraps in a new cloth box. 1966(1970).
First Edition as dated 1966, but not a true first. Photomontage showing contiguously every building on both sides of the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Approximately 22 feet long when folded out to its full length. Ruscha identifies street numbers and the names of cross streets. The folded accordion paper of Ruscha's "Sunset Strip" has an extra 2" flap of paper folded over behind the last page of a real first edition. The final Jaguar building is pictured alone on this last half page. All other editions are cut evenly on the final page, including later printings that say "first edition" in front. Apparently the printer made an error in estimating the proper folding length of the printed paper the first time, but this was corrected in subsequent editions.
