An important Pop Art catalogue-cum-photobook. Warhol's first European exhibition was hosted at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm in 1968. Warhol produced the book for the show, combining photographs of his works, quotes, and snapshots of himself and The Factory taken by Billy Name and a young Stephen Shore. The photographs are placed together by Warhol in a continous, loose collage, reflecting the artist's stream-of-consciousness, and are reproduced with a newsprint quality. Three editions of the book was published in total. This third edition came out two years after the first and includes a small section of photographs taken at the Stockholm exhibition.
