Ed Ruscha's publication of artist books beginning in the early 1960s had a profound effect on other contemporary artists. Bruce Nauman's Burning Small Fires (1969) was the first of many books directly influenced by and in conversation with Ruscha's publications; in this case Ruscha's Various Small Fires and Milk (1964), a book featuring documentary-like photographs of matches, a smoking pipe, and other forms of fire. The opening of Ed Ruscha Books & Co. will coincide with the release of MIT Press's Various Small Books: Referencing Small Books by Ed Ruscha (2013) and will feature over one hundred artist books by Ruscha and numerous others, showcasing Ruscha's lasting impact along with those he has inspired.
