To Eva Descending the Stair
This is one of fify copies of "To Eva Descending the Stair" (1974). The body of the piece is housed (loosely) inside a shiny black cover. The artwork is by Ralph Steadman and is signed by him. Also, this copy has a handwrit note by Ted. Given the sloppy nature of the writing, I have always imaged this being at a launch party with liquor flowing and handwriting getting a bit sloppy. If anyone has insight into what exacly this says or who "Keith" could be, I'd love to hear it. The black cover is a little bit dinged up, but the tri-fold poem/artwork inside is pristine.
