Crisp, clean , beautiful book which appears almost as new. The only fault is tiny spots of edge wear, otherwise it has a tight binding with no creases to spine and pristine pages and page edges. There are also no names or writing. Book measures 8-1/2" x 10-1/2 with 223 pages. This is a very t unusual art book, but it's also quirky, interesting, and fascinating. The title comes from a Pittsburgh building where mattresses had been made at the turn of the 20th century. In 1975 the buildng came alive and in 1977 artists rented studios .The exhbitions came in 1982 titled Factory Installations and eventually met with Performance Art as well. The book has much info on the artists and there is an abundance of photographs printed on quality coated paper.I loved this book at first sight-- first, because I had no idea what it was about and secondly, because it's not only contemporary art, but a chance to expolore the artists thoughts.
