Amsterdam: De Bezige Bij, 1973. 8vo softcover in printed green wraps with glassine endpapers. Inside pages offset printed in red, brown, green, and yellow with tipped in strings of yarn on one page, and a double-edged razor blade sealed in wax paper on another. Unpaginated. Text in Dutch.
A profusely illustrated artists’ book in which Clavin playfully alters between collage, typography, illustration, and photography to create some of the most memorable concrete poetry of its time. The added variation in the use of color makes each spread feel unique, yet it all holds together as a singular story. It’s clear that this book is as much about the connection between art, typography, and design, as it is about relationships.
Very good with a slightly cocked spine, darkening around edges, and a few bumps to the corners. Item #19
