Twentysix Gasoline Stations
Edward (Ed) Ruscha
The Cunningham press; Alhambra CA, USA
1969 [1962]
Edition: One of 3000 copies
Notes: Originally printed in a numbered edition of 400, a second edition of 500 was published in 1967 and a third of 3000 in 1969. Neither of these later editions was numbered. Tate: "In an interview in 2008, Ruscha underlined the importance for him of his bookworks, stating, ‘I felt when I got going on the books that it was really the red meat of my work. It was the choice bit. Although I was painting pictures at that time, I felt that the books were more advanced as a concept than the individual paintings I had been doing’."
