    Andy Warhol. Second edition. Stockholm: Moderna Museet, 1969.

    BOB COLACELLO'S COPY. THE RARE HARDCOVER ISSUE BOUND FOR THE FACTORY. Colacello became Interview's editor very soon after Warhol and Paul Morrissey asked him to write for the magazine in 1970. Colacello remained closely affiliated with The Factory for over a decade. "A worthy adjunct to Index (Book)... it is a fine example of the catalogue-as-artist's book"; this catalogue "had a great influence upon Japanese photography in the late 1960s and 1970s" (The Photobook). With, laid-in, a printed invitation to the exhibition opening at the Moderna Museet, reproducing the cover design. The Open Book, pp. 238-39; The Photobook, vol. II, pp.144-45 (for another variant of this same edition).
