9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the most consistently inventive artists of recent times, Los Angeles-based Ed Ruscha has been a pioneer in the use of language and imagery drawn from the popular media. From his early powerful word paintings to his influential artist books of the sixties and seventies to his recent colorful views of generic mountains, Ruscha has investigated the spaces between highways and journeys, images and words, abstraction and representation, public imagery and the contemporary landscape. In this publication, which accompanies a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. and the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, Neal Benezra, Kerry Brougher, and Phyllis Rosenzweig focus on all aspects of Ruscha's career, revealing him not merely as an artist closely linked with Los Angeles, but as an important international figure in contemporary art."--Amazon

Ed Ruscha : ER by Mary Agnes Richards ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"American artist Ed Ruscha (b. 1937) is a master of creating art that is at once playful and profound. Ruscha's inimitable work frequently involves the setting of a single word or phrase against a stained background or monumental landscape. His paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, books, and films were influential in the development of Pop Art, and his stunning artist's books continue to inspire up-and-coming artists today." "In this definitive overview of Ruscha's career to date, Mary Richards traces the progression of the artist's work across five decades. The book also focuses on Ruscha's techniques, particularly his delicate drawings, prints using organic materials, and process of making art as documented in his notebooks. With stunning reproductions and new interview material, this thought-provoking book probes the internal logic of Ruscha's oeuvre for words, images, and phrases that resurface time and again."--BOOK JACKET

Various small fires and milk by Edward Ruscha ( Book )
14 editions published between 1964 and 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The most renowned series of artist's books in the history of the genre, Ed Ruscha's works [Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Some Los Angeles Apartments, Various Small Fires and Thirtyfour Parking Lots] still retain their capacity to surprise, delight and puzzle in equal measure. In the several decades since they were published, they have been much exhibited, written about and analyzed, yet they somehow are still objects of mystery and fascination, beguiling in their utter simplicity and immutable rightness. At the time of publication, they were largely overlooked by much of the photography world. The apparent anti-formalism and indifferent technique of Ruscha's pictures were derided; the perfect formalism of each book as an art object was not appreciated. Also disregarded was Ruscha's interest in, and debt to, two of photography's luminaries--Walker Evans and Robert Frank."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004
