Edward Ruscha (American, born 1937)
Dutch Details, 1971
Deventer: The Octopus Foundation and Sonsbeek 17, 1971. 116 black and white photographic reproductions on 10 fold-out leaves; original white card covers printed in black; one of approx. 200 copies.
The 1st edition of this book is one of only approximately 200 copies that survived when 'most of the edition was accidentally discarded from the warehouse where it had been stored' (The Open Book, pp. 198-99). The unique place of Dutch Details among Ruscha's books and its emphatic horizontality reflect Ruscha's response to the Dutch landscape around Groningen, where he was invited to work' (Engberg and Phillpot, p. 74).
