VERSUCHE 8/9: Realien

Münster: VERSUCHE, 1967. Numbered edition of 150, of which this is no. 13. Narrow softcover 4to in saddle-stitched printed wrappers, with spine wrapped in black book cloth, purple end sheets and divider pages. With several French fold signatures and three four-panel foldouts printed in black and white. Unpaginated (18 pp.) To which is added a postcard printed in black and white on recto and verso. Text in German. Signed by one of the contributors on one of the foldouts.

A double issue of this scarce artists’ magazine, edited by Martin Jürgens, featuring writing, artwork, found art, and concrete poetry. With contributions by Gert Loschütz, P. G. Hübsch, Uwe Herms, Timm Ulrichs, Michael Wolf, Arnfrid Astel, and K. H. Grewe. Also features three impressive foldouts, one of which is by Ulrichs, and with Herms being signed. Much like the magazine ‘JA—Zeitschrift für Literatur und Grafik’—also edited by Jürgens—a great example of the experimental publications coming out of West Germany in the late 1960s. With publisher’s promotional card laid in.

Light bumps to corners, handling creases to a few pages, and age toning throughout. Else near fine. Item #474
