Price: $450.00


Lawndale, CA: SST, 1978. First Edition. 4to. 26.6 x 18.4 cm. Original stapled glossy pictorial wraps. One of an unnumbered edition of approximately 5000, "of which only about 100 found their way into commercial distribution" (Ohrt). [64]pp. Offset printed. Some mild toning, else quite sharp. Near fine or better. (Item ID: 21647)

The first book from the artist most associated with the American - and especially Southern California - punk rock scene. Pettibon's indelible black-and-white images graced LPs and fliers for the likes of the Circle Jerks, Dead Kennedy's, Descendents, Germs, H¸sker D¸, Meat Puppets, Minutemen, Ramones, Sonic Youth, Subhumans,Throbbing Gristle, and (most famously) Black Flag - whose name the artist coined. Pettibon's brother Greg Ginn was guitarist for the band and founder of SST Records, under whose auspices most of Pettibon's early books were published and distributed. They unfortunately didn't sell well and - according to the artist - he destroyed most of the remaining copies, leaving only a hundred or so copies of each issue extant. Pettibon (who's also worked under the names Raymond Pettibone, St. Pettibone, Chuck Higby, Raymond Ginn, and Ray Dylan) remains one of the most provocative and vital artists working today, and one whose influence has grown far past his cult beginnings. [Ohrt 1]. [Aarons and Roth 394-403].
