    The “Index” was sold during the 1967 holiday season as a “hip gift book”. It was available in both a Hardback ($ 12.95), a Softback ($4.95), and a signed boxed edition ($50.00). Both editions have the same interiors. The included flexidisc plays – not an unrecorded song by Nico and the Velvet Underground but – , a casually recorded actual conversation between Nico, Warhol, and others about producing and designing the book. Also in the original advertisement above for this book above, the “strange” rainbow nose was promoted as “a do it yourself nose job.” According to Billy Name the nose was Bob Dylan’s. The squeak that one hears on the accordion page was supposed to depict/sound like a fart. The tear off papers that some think were for dropping acid were actually designed to drop into water. Once in the water they dissolve and the name Andy Warhol floats to the top. The Castle design was pulled from a Hallmark Robin Hood promotional. The biplane came from one of Graphic International’s promo pieces. Much of the text/design was based on inside jokes between Warhol and his friends”.

    “Born in Amsterdam in 1957, Ari Marcopoulos came to New York in 1979 and quickly became part of a downtown art scene that included Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring and Robert Mapplethorpe. Since then, Marcopoulos has become recognized as a leading documentarian of contemporary culture, having chronicled the emerging hip hop scene, shot snowboarders in action and revealed the vicissitudes of his family life. Marcopoulos always appears to have forged a strong connection with the people he photographs, whether celebrated figures-from Andy Warhol to Kiki Smith, John Cage to LL Cool J-or more obscure personalities, so that he captures, without sentimentality or voyeurism, the intimate sensation of their daily lives. His images are particular to a time and place, but reach out to us via familiar themes such as family and the longing for adventure. The first retrospective on Marcopoulos, Within Arm’s Reach collects work from three decades, and is supplemented with an essay by Stephanie Cannizzo”
