The Andy Warhol Diaries
London Simon & Schutster Ltd 1989
xix + 807pp with 2 gatherings of black and white photographs, largely taken by Warhol himself. Black cloth boards with silver titling on spine and original dustwrapper. Very good, with slight sun mark along top edge of boards. Spans the period from 1976 to Warhol's early death in 1987. Warhol, who had phoned his long-time friend and collaborator, Hackett, every morning since '76, to recount the events of the previous 24 hours left Hackett with over twenty thousand resulting manuscripts of which this book is a selection. An illuminating social document and inside view into the art world and social happenings of the period.
