Neuwied, Berlin: Luchterhand, 1971. Softcover 8vo in printed purple wraps, with inside pages offset printed in black and white. Unpaginated. Text mostly in German, with some in English, French, and Italian. Inscribed and signed by the artist.
Through appropriated newspapers advertisements, photographs, telephone book listings, manipulated typography, and texts, Gerz explores the process of concrete poetry as it relates to the source material it often comes from. A simple yet powerful artists’ book from this German visual poet, which is also inscribed in black ink on the title page.
Very good with trace amounts of wear along the spine and rubbing to cover, a small stain on front cover, a bump to lower right corner, and age toning throughout. Item #56
