Art-Rite #13. Alan Suicide, Alan Vega.

Art-Rite #13

New York: Art-Rite, 1977. 4to, wraps, offset printed on newsprint. Of two known variants, this is the one with red titles on cover, with different interior contents to the black captioned issue.

A remarkable issue completely curated by Alan Vega of Suicide, featuring mostly found images, one of the most perfectly conceived works of the early punk and a standalone artists' book as well as an issue of one of the best conceptual art periodicals around. "We dedicate this issue to the average American in search of excitement. These images, distilled from the ambient culture, are the touchstones of a new sensibility, icons of the dissipations and strengths of the modern spirit. Let the way of life idealized in the pages by the To Lose lo Track of the punk scene bring into your home the romance of the underculture -- horse racing, white-trash smut, greasy rock n' roll, muscles, motorcycles and the end of civilization."

Very good with the usual toning, and a small chip and closed tear to back cover. Item #28669
