Footnotes

  • Literature:
    Parr, M. & Badger, G., The Photobook: A History, Volume 2 (Phaidon, 2006), pp.142-143

    The fourth of Ed Ruscha's artist books, Every Building on the Sunset Strip departs from the format of its predecessors in its use of one specific location, photographed in its entirety.
    "Not only the most physically ambitious of Ruscha's books, but also the most flamboyant. Nevertheless...it retains the deadpan photographic style that distinguishes all Ruscha's photobooks." (Parr & Badger 2006, p.143).
