QUADLOG: ARLINGTON QUADRO 1968

Sherbourne: South Street Publications, 1968. First edition. Horizontal 8vo in white covers printed in black and bound with a blue plastic comb with two fasteners, one of which is lacking in this example with the second fastener snapped in half. Binding remains solid, however on account of the rigid plastic comb. Pages printed on rectos in black or blue on various paper types, with several works in color, including one gatefold. Lacking the Ken Cox ‘high cumulus’ four-panel gatefold, but otherwise complete. Unpaginated [ca. 100 pp.]

Artists’ book in the form of a catalogue for a 1968 visual and concrete poetry exhibition jointly organized by E. M. de Melo e Castro from Portugal and Charles Verey from England. Exhibitors from Portugal included E. M. de Melo e Castro, Abilio-José Santos, Antonio Aragão, Ana Hatherly, José-Alberto Marques, and José Viale Moutinho. Exhibitors from England included Ian Breakwell, Thomas A. Clark, Bob Cobbing, Ken Cox, Simon Cutts, Dom Sylvester Houédard (dsh), Tom Edmonds, Ian Hamilton Finlay, John Furnival, John Hall, Roy Hewish, Brian Lane, Liliane Lijn, Andrew Lloyd, Peter Mayer, Cavan McCarthy, Stuart Mills, Edwin Morgan, Hayden Murphy, Tom Phillips, John J. Sharkey, Charles Verey, and Trevor Wells. Illustrated throughout by approximately twenty of the contributors, an introductory essay by Dom Sylvester Houédard (dsh), who also designed the cover, and a handful of photographs from the exhibition. Lacking the Ken Cox ‘high cumulus’ four-panel gatefold, but otherwise complete. Scarce.

Lacking one of the two plastic comb fasteners with the second fastener snapped in half, age toning and rubbing to covers, including a 1.5 cm (0.5") stain at middle of foredge affecting the first twenty-four pages mostly visible only on versos. Very good. Item #1098
