62 pages with 44 color images and 2 black and white images.
A pristine copy. The cover has the slightest hints of shelf wear upon very close inspection. Fine condition.
Largely photographs of his Lower East Side friends. In Seesaw magazine, Mcginley recalls how it led to his Whitney show :
"three months into working for Index, they established Index Books and they said, ‘Your book is already done, you have it all on the computer, and we really love it. Why don’t we publish it?’ The turnaround was really fast; I think it took about three weeks. The readership of Index was an art-oriented crowd, and wherever Index was available my book was available, so a lot of people in the art world got it. Eventually it ended up on the desk of Sylvia Wolff, the curator of photography at the Whitney. She came down to my studio. I showed her what I was working on that summer. She was interested, so she offered me a show."
