Baird Jones, Mark Kostabi and the East Village Scene 1983–1987. Matteo Editore (Treviso), 2002. Softcover, 144 pages. Signed by Jones and Kostabi.
This under-appreciated classic pairs Baird’s first-person account of the 1980s East Village art scene with his paparazzi shots showing Kostabi with hundreds of celebrities from both the art world (Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol) and the mass media (Steve Martin, Paul Simon).
