In preparing this volume and the related exhibition, the artist has worked closely with Whitney Museum curator Sylvia.   Ed Ruscha’s Photos of the Sunset Strip. Nearly everything about the Los Angeles appealed to him—the endless sprawl, the two-story apartment houses with outdoor stairways, the hot rods, the jazz clubs, the billboards, the sunrises and sunsets, the boulevards that led to the ocean.
