Frankfurt: typos verlag, 1967. Edition of 500, of which this is no. 32. Horizontal leporello bound 8vo consisting of fourteen panels. Letter pressed in black and signed by the artist. Text in German.
An artists’ book with groupings of small letterforms that build in layers from panel to panel, finally reaching a critical mass of black. An exploration in poetry using letterforms handsomely set in Futura, like most of Mayer’s work.
Very good with trace amounts of darkening and soiling including light foxing to outside covers and age toning throughout. Item #166
