    A little rubbing and bumping, with minor handling, but in excellent condition apart from the flaws mentioned here. Unpaginated - 280 x 215 mm (11 x 8½ inches). Alan Rinzler said "The two simultaneous editions, in cloth and paper, sold out quickly and the book is now a valuable out-of-print work of original Warhol art". Rinzler was consulting editor of the Loft 1967-1969. Involved in "producing with him [Warhol] in a very collaborative creative process The Andy Warhol Index Book, a large format heavily designed book with special fold-out and pop-up features, photos, audio recordings, and text.

    In 1965, a photographer named Billy Liar had come to me with an idea for a photo book on Warhol and his factory, but when he brought me there, I took the opportunity to ask Andy if would like to participate more personally in creating a book that was also work of art, something he actually put together, as the author. And not just photographs and text but other ideas we could cook up that related to everything else he was producing at the time. Luckily, Andy was happy to agree and became the author of the book."
