Two Stories for Andy Warhol.

C Press, 1965. Item #1914

Side-stapled legal-size mimeo, with 10 pages of text plus title page and Thermo-Fax cover by Warhol. Publisher Ted Berrigan altered the title on the book’s cover and title pagefrom Two Stories for Andy Warhol to 2 / 2 Stories for Andy Warhol—without the poet’s knowledge. The found text was excerpted from an early twentieth-century novel and is repeated on each page of the mimeographed book, reflecting the poet’s interest in appropriation and repetition.


The cover image, procured from Warhol by Berrigan, is a two-frame repeated still derived from a Warhol film and printed using the Thermo- Fax machine.

Cover is detached from staples and there are residual chips and small holes on the left. There is a 3/4 in. closed tear to bottom edge. Interior pages are very good plus with a 3/8 tear to lower left portion of title page (see photos).

Together with the Warhol segment of the Thermo-Fax cover that measures 7 3/4 x 9 1/4 in. Autograph note in the hand of Ted Berrigan to verso, "A.W. Cover: Two Stories For Andy Warhol - by Ron Padgett. "C" Press 66? 65?" Lightly handled and with a few small tears and chips.

Price: $12,500.00
