    At the thrift store today (behind the counter) I found this Andy Warhol Viaggio in Italia book - for $69.95! I googled it & found the book selling for $89 & up. While I am thinking about it & looking the book over it opened to a page with a photograph of Warhol visiting a grave. On the back (it is on Kodak paper) is a Italian news agency stamp + a stamp with (I'm guessing) the photohrapher's info.
    There was also a business card with prices on the back for something by Warhol.
    There are 2 versions of this book (different covers) - why is 1 so much more expensive?
    Any info on the photograph? (whose grave? Any Value?)
    Does the business card mean anything?
    I paid the $70 and am hoping it was a good gamble (there are none for sale on eBay so I'm hoping in a auction I might get a couple of people in a bidding war - any info on the photograph would help that possibility!)
    Thanks, I appreciate any help.

    I don’t think that is Warhol. I don’t remember him looking like that, yes he had white hair, mostly wigs but not that style and he was always thin.
    The pic is about this poor woman Giorgiano Masi’s assassination.

    I agree - does not look like Warhol to me either.

    Not to mention that the picture was taken 10 years after he died. ;)

    OOPS! I shoulda caught that, @Houseful !

    This has been on my wish list for years... I saw it at a junk store, and kept in touch with the owner after she closed. Her number is on one of my old flip phones, if I can ever find them :)

    Just an invite (you can see the folds), but had an unverified signature on it...

    Is it a biography? I don't read Italian & there's not much on the internet!
