This summer we were given a copy of Peter Gidal’s Andy Warhol: Films and Paintings and it was put into processing as a normal acquisition, but upon closer inspection we discovered a few surprises within the book.

This unassuming paperback is signed by Andy Warhol in marker on the title page. While that is wonderful enough to make a book special the autograph seeker also documented the book signing.  Tucked into the pages were three color machine prints including what we can only guess is the artist’s car parked outside and two photographs of Andy Warhol himself.  The photographs are stamped JAN 81, which puts the signing at about 10 years after the book was published and six years before Warhol’s death in February of 1987.
