New York: Thea Westreich / Cologne: Gisella [sic] Capitain, 1989. Limited Edition. Oversized folio (23 in. tall). One of 8 Artist's Proof copies (III/VIII), in excess of the edition of 350 numbered copies; SIGNED and hand-numbered to colophon. Christopher Wool's first major bookwork, fully illustrated after 17 of his canonical word paintings: spokesman, insomniac, pessimist, prankster, chameleon, adversary, comedian, terrorist, hypnotist, hypocrite, celebrity, authority, extremist, persuader, assistant, assassin, and paranoiac. This is a remarkably fine copy, with only a hint of scuffing to the plain black papered boards—and still accompanied by the publishers' original box, featuring a typescript Thea Westreich label to the front panel, identifying this as one of Wool's proofs. An astounding copy of one of the most important artist's books from the last three decades.
