London: Architectural Association, 1986. [Modernism] SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, number 850 of 1000 copies. Portfolio (12 x 12 inches) of 20 silkscreen prints which when assembled form a print 1525 x 1120 mm, together with 28-page catalogue printed in colour, housed in folding box with ribbon pull release, titled in white to spine and upper, hand-numbered and autographed to upper. Fine contents, in a near fine box with some bumping to foot of spine. Published to coincide with an exhibition of paintings and drawings by Andrew Holmes at the AA from 9 January to 7 February 1986. Andrew Holmes is Britain's best-known super-realist painter and graphic designer. He is also an architect and one of the original Richard Rogers four-person practice, a long time unit master at the Architectural Association and latterly at the University of Westminster. Encompassing drawing, printmaking, photography, film and design, his work explores the apparently anonymous mobile infrastructure of cities, particularly the American metropolis. The present item is the catalogue for an installation in Bedford Square in June 1988. It originally accompanied the Big Pic Box, which included eighteen colour plates, complete copies of which are currently valued around £800 [AA Bookshop, 2018]. Item #50743
