One in a series of square artists’ books by the German artist, graphic designer, and typographer, all of which were printed in limited editions.

Very good with rubbing to plastic covers, bumps to corners, wear along margins, age toning along text block extremities, and offset rubbing to pages on account of the thick ink in combination with the various sized pages. Item #925
