Jacket and volume clearly perused but remain Near Fine, despite the inherent clumsiness of a reader-voyeur needing to handle such a weighty tome. How was it never dropped?
A candid photographic compendium of the hyperfamous and unfamous who hung out—overclothed, underclothed, and without clothes—in the orbit of Mr. Warhol. Billy Name (1940-2016), né William George Linich, served as the chief decorator, archivist, and portraitist for Warhol's Factory and its denizens.
