POÈME MATHÉMATIQUE BAROQUE
Paris: Agentzia Editions, 1968. Second edition. Three-panel 19 x 21 cm (7.5 x 8.27 in) folder silk screened in neon yellow and black at recto, with chip board at verso. Containing six unbound plates, three of which are printed on various colors on white card stock with additional die cuts, two which are printed in black on red and blue card stock, and one yellow plate unprinted (as issued). Text in French.
Interactive artists’ book by Edgardo Antonio Vigo featuring a series of geometric and typographic motifs printed on plates, some of which are die cut, that can be rearranged by the reader to create different narratives. Deliberately printed without pagination inviting a random exchange of possibilities with the die cut pages adding further dimension as the plates are shuffled. Second edition of this artists’ book issued as Agentzia No. 5 edited and published by Jochen Gerz and Jean-François Bory. First edition also published in Paris a year earlier by Contexte Editions. Both editions equally rare.
Covers very good with offset rubbing and wear along margins. Plates near fine showing only trace amounts of age toning. Item #996
