Dallesandro (Subject/Signatory); Warhol, Andy (Subject) & Name, Billy (Photographer). ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES: BILLY NAME'S PHOTOGRAPHS OF ANDY WARHOL'S FACTORY. New York City, NY: Distributed Art Publishers, 1997. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 143 pages. Fine.

Retrospective collection of photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books on Andy Warhol, Joe Dallesandro, and The Factory. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. A brilliant production by DAP: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Billy Name. Text by Dave Hickey and Collier Schorr. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Billy Name's "All Tomorrow's Parties". A gem of a book: Informal snapshots and portraits of Andy Warhol, Joe Dallesandro, and members of The Factory, who include Lou Reed, John Cale, Paul Morrissey, Ultra Violet, and Viva, among many others. "Reproduces for the first time his recently re-discovered photos of Warhol, his crowd, and The Factory years, images that give the era another dimension. Their experimental use of color balances and diptych printing is uncannily contemporary" (Publisher's blurb). As a portrait of the 1960's-1970's NYC bohemian scene, they uncannily anticipate Nan Goldin's "The Ballad of Sexual Dependency" (1986) and the work of Jack Pierson, among others. Joe Dallesandro remains the cult icon/figure of Warhol's ground-breaking underground films, whose aesthetics and style anticipate by almost fifty years the deliberately crude and gritty sex films that appear routinely online today. An absolute "must-have" title for Joe Dallesandro, Andy Warhol, and Billy Name collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker above his diptych portrait (on Page 66) by Joe Dallesandro. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient, Reed Massengill, is the leading authority on male erotic photography in America (his blind stamp is in front). Laid-in is a 5 X 4 inch original color print of the same diptych, which was given to Massengill by Dallesandro. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy with color print of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. Please note: A collection of Dallesandro memorabilia (publicity stills, magazine covers, film outtakes; not one of them is an original print) available online commands $7500. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed set thus. 135 color plates. One of the iconic American model/actors of the 20th century. A fine collectible set.
