Florence / Paris: Centro Di, Florence / Galerie Sonnabend, Paris, 1975. Small horizontal softcover 8vo in printed black wrappers. Unpaginated (ca. 52 pp.)
Published on the occasion of Baldessari’s exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam November 21, 1975 – January 4, 1976, this photographic artists’ book documents a woman experiencing the following events first hand: 1. Putting a finger in milk, 2. Touching a cactus, 3. Putting out a cigarette, 4. Pushing a plate off a table. As often is the case, Baldessari walks a delicate line between the sardonic and the obvious with a wink.
Surface scratches to cover including a hard diagonal fold line to lower right tip of cover, wear to extremities (common with this title), and light foxing to endpapers, else very good. Item #121
