Pop Art: Do it Yourself
Düsseldorf: Verlag Kalender, Hansjoachim Dietrich, . 12mo in stiff laminated wrappers bound with a glued black cloth spine. Pages printed on card stock. Unpaginated. Text in German and English.
A survey documenting the new art of the 1960’s bringing together artists from the fields of Pop Art and Fluxus featuring early paintings, collages, documents, prompts, and texts by Rot, Dine, Lichtenstein, Oldenburg, Segal, Brecht, Vostell, Dietrich, Rotella, and Paik, most of which were relatively unknown at the time. Different than most surveys of the time, the book is designed in a way that combines the art forms, in turn, creating a new narrative. A unique and handsomely designed reading experience which is an artists’ book above anything else.
A very similar design and format was used for the 1965 publication ‘Happenings, U.S. Pop Art, Nouveau Realisme, Etc.’, also published by Verlag Kalender.
Trace amounts of rubbing to covers with a lightly cocked spine and age toning throughout, else near fine. Item #198
