    S U N is excited to offer this bundle of Bill Sullivan's new edition of Forest Hills along with his book of posters from Forest Hills Stadium Bill Sullivan Posters 2015 - 2023 , and a signed 20" X 26" print on 300 lb, fine art paper.


    The bundle contains 1) the new edition of Bill Sullivan’s book Forest Hills, a surreal chronicle of the 20th-century history of tennis and art first published in 2013. Printed on the occasion of the 100-year anniversary of the Stadium at Forest Hills, Sullivan’s book confuses and conflates the 20th-century stories of tennis and art to create a new kind of history. Once the center of tennis in America and the home of the US Open, Forest Hills as it was once known is now an almost forgotten world, a lost civilization of the sport. Sullivan's Forest Hills uses photography and various types of image-making to chronicle its rise and fall. The book follows the history of the site and the birth of the stadium as it evolves from its heights as the cathedral of American tennis to its near-complete demise. Functioning as an ahistorical/historical document, Forest Hills is a story about a real place as well as a meditation on how this place and its elements may have been viewed by people in the past over time. The book contains 83 images in color and black and white, including several new depictions of the stadium, along with other new images produced for this edition. The linen cover is silkscreened and foil stamped with a design based on a print by the American painter Barnett Newman. 


    And 2) Bill Sullivan Posters 2015 - 2023 Forest Hills    Beginning in 2015, following the publication of his 2013 book Forest Hills , Bill Sullivan started working with the management of Forest Hills Stadium to produce a unique poster for every act that played the venue. The horseshoe shaped tennis stadium depicted by Sullivan in his book had had begun extensive renovations in 2013 turning the 14,000 seat tennis stadium into a modern concert venue . Bill Sullivan Posters 2015 - 2023 Forest Hills spans that 8 year period and includes each his 126 posters from that time. All of the posters in he series are built around the horseshoe shape that defines the stadium. The horseshoe shape provides the same basic format for each poster, as it completely changes its style to assume the specific identity of each of the different acts that play the venue.
