A twice-signed copy of “POPism: The Warhol’ 60s” by Andy Warhol and Pat Hackett.
Signed by Warhol on the front cover, and again on the interior including an inscription “to Julie with love”, with an added “vagina” drawing beneath the signature. The book is accompanied by a signed letter by the consignor describing her meeting with Warhol.
“I was working as a copywriter at Sakowitz in Houston in the early 1980s. One day on my lunch break, I set out to do some shopping on the second floor. Andy Warhol had been invited to have a book signing for ‘POPism’ – part of a promotional festival of some kind. As I came down the escalator to the first floor, there he was, sitting alone at a table with a stack of books. This was simply not acceptable!
I rushed to the table, introduced myself and bought a book. He asked my name and inscribed it to me – with his signature making me part of the amazing Warhol legacy.”
