(Copenhagen): Np, (1965). First edition of 100. Saddle-stapled softcover 4to in tan wrappers printed in black and white on recto sides only with pages featuring various die-cuts. Unpaginated (12 pp.) Text in German.

Artists’ book by Jirí Kolár featuring typescript concrete poems consisting of the lowercase letter ‘r’ on die-cut pages. Published with the help of Eric Andersen who mediated the project. Half the edition was kept in Copenhagen, with the other half sent to Willem de Ridder’s European Mail-Order Warehouse / Fluxshop. The book showcases Kolár’s mastery of concrete poetry as it relates to the artists’ book through layering and depth creating a definitively unique reading experience. One in a series of books by Kolár created in this theme.
