New York Beat: Jean Michel Basquiat in Downtown 81.
8vo. 112pp colour photography in paper covered boards. English & Japanese texts. Tokyo: Petit Grand Publishing Inc., 2001. 

Cool photo book showing a behind the scenes look at the making of the film 'Downtown '81', an ultra-hip film documenting the subculture of post-punk era Manhattan. The publication includes an introductory text by Glenn O'Brien who produced the film and cast the then-unknown Jean-Michel Basquiat in the leading role. Basquiat was only 19 years old at the time and slept in the production office during shooting.
