Buenos Aires: Centro de Arte y Comunicación (CAyC), 1971. Edition of 1,500. Softcover 12mo in gray wrappers printed in black throughout. Unpaginated (94 pp.) Parallel text in Spanish and English.
Early artists’ book by Lawrence Weiner issued under the direction of Jorge Glusberg at CAyC with this being the pirate edition published with permission of the artist. Issued same year as Yvon Lambert edition in Paris, but not as an exhibition catalogue per the page following the title page: “This book is not a part of any exhibition, but it is distributed by CAYC in their function of providing information to Latin American Peoples.” More scarce than edition size would suggest.
