Title page for "Faster, Jim", 2002
Lithograph on paper
18 in. x 15 in. (45.72 cm x 38.1 cm)
We have recently completed work on a bound book entitled "Faster, Jim" with text and images in which Raymond Pettibon collaborates with Greg Colson, Francesca Gabbiani, Dani Tull, Victor Gastelum, Scott Grieger, Todd Squires, and Eddie Ruscha. There are 22 hand printed lithographs, and one photograph by Todd Squires. The aluminum cover is a silkscreen by Victor Gastelum and the slip case is silkscreened with an image by Pettibon and Gastelum. All lithographs were printed by Ed Hamilton, the silkscreens were printed by Jeff Wasserman, the binding was done by Kitty Maryatt, and the publisher is Hamilton Press. The edition size is 27. A DVD entitled "The Artists of Faster, Jim" (an interview with those involved in the project) is forthcoming and will be given to each purchaser of the book. PRICE: $15,000. Raymond Pettibon and the edition were featured in an article in the L.A. Times, entitled "Book as art medium: Here's a new chapter" in which Joyce Ludmer of the Getty Research Institute was quoted as saying, "(Faster, Jim) reflects something going on in our society right now." The Getty has purchased the book. The theme is travel. As you turn the pages you will go from land to sea to space to air, and back down to Earth. The pages are linked consecutively. To return to a previous page, use your back button, or at any time you may choose another link from the banner at the top of the page. We hope you will travel all the way through the 29 pages to home plate, and a new beginning.
