This catalog was published when on the occasion of Haring’s SOHO gallery debut at the Tony Shafrazi gallery, a one-man-breakout exhibition in 1982. This book is much sought after and captures some of his most iconic pieces and images that catapulted him to world fame. Illustrated in both color and black and white. With text by Robert Pincus-Witten, Jeffrey Deitch and David Shapiro. Two thousand copies of the first edition and 5000 of this second edition. Considering those numbers, this dazzling book is exceptionally scarce in the world market.
