For all the Warhol-ics here's another terrific little gem: It's a lovely 8 square inch softcover catalogue with stapled wraps of a 1998 Warhol exhibition in London's Peter Gwyther Gallery, filled with fascinating anecdotes from Lord Archer and Larry Powell about how they scoured the world for the perfect Warhol.

Powell describes meetings with gallerist Susan Sheehan (also known as author & publisher of the Robert Indiana catalogue raisonne) Sotheby's, the Warhol Foundation, and Princess Diana's charities.

This gem of a little publication has 10 color illustrations including front and back cover pages and has 12 pages total(unpaginated).

It is in excellent condition.
