No Time Left to Start Again, The B and D of R 'n' R
Published by Christine Burgin.
Collector’s Paradise is Allen Ruppersberg’s unique reflection on the history of popular American music. The product of years of combing flea markets and yard sales in search of both the visual and recorded history of rock and roll, this book traces rock and roll back to the Minstrel days and American popular song post-Civil War, in a chronological list of 1,500 key recordings and more than 300 color illustrations of material from Ruppersberg’s collection. In his introductory essay, Ruppersberg discusses the urgency he feels in creating this narrative of a common musical history before it is lost: If you live long enough you begin to see the endings of the things in which you saw the beginnings. “It seemed to me … that this was the last possible moment to be able to gather any of this material in the manner I did and I am even more convinced now that I was right.”

Allen Ruppersberg (born 1944) came of age as an artist in late-1960s Los Angeles, where he was part of the burgeoning L.A. Conceptual movement—that unique band of artists that included Bas Jan Ader, Ger van Elk, William Leavitt, Allan McColllum and William Wegman. Like these artists and other L.A. Conceptual pioneers such as Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari, Ruppersberg used photographs (both made and found) in combination with text and narrative strategies to mingle, blend and upend both fiction and fact—most famously in “Where's Al?” (1972) and “Between the Scenes” (1973). In this wonderfully designed spiral-bound artist's book, Ruppersberg repurposes a 1956 “Guest Informant” book from the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco as a backdrop for a selection of photographs and postcards from 1985–1989, culled from his own collection, and alluding to earlier works such as “Al's Grand Hotel.” You and Me also includes new essays on Ruppersberg by such longstanding fans as Greil Marcus and Constance Lewallen.

This comprehensive book on one of Fluxus's most influential and entertaining artists features Ruppersberg's "Event Objects" of the 1960s and 1970s. His lists, scripts, books, signs and posters compress big ideas into mischievously tangible objects that make the viewer a part of the piece.
