A photographic artists’ book documenting Bertini’s 1971 exhibition at Studio Santandrea in Milano. The show was organized as a mean to clarify his painting process and consisted of three projectors filling the gallery walls from floor to ceiling with images of advertisements, airplanes, car crashes, motorcycles, and women interspersed with large typographic texts which would sometimes extend onto the ceiling. A handsome documentation of Bertini, his process, and his passions.
Light sunning to spine which extends 4 cm (1.5") onto the front cover, with the slightly oversized covers wraps have folded inward toward the text block creating a few small nicks and closed tears, and trace amounts of age toning throughout, else fine. Item #18
