Condition: See description


Wuppertal: Verlag der Kalender, 1961. Large square octavo (29.3 × 30.5 cm). Original stiff printed wrappers; Chinese-style folded leaves; ca. 64 pp. A few stains and light toning to wrappers; internally very good. Collaborative bookwork by Vostell, a leading exponent of Décollage, and Dufrêne, a leading Nouveau Réaliste artist and writer, consisting of concrete poems by Dufrêne accompanied by 23 original screenprints by Vostell in black and white, with additional textual material by Jouffroy at rear. A strikingly beautiful work, with typographical flourishes throughout as well as screenprints with subtle gradations of grey tones. A radical and monumental work, hinting at influence by the "Affichiste" Mimmo Rotella, and prefiguring the proliferation of concrete and visual poetry and works incorporating words in the subsequent decade. Unstated limited edition (an authoritative source informs us that 300 copies were printed). As of November 2019, KVK and OCLC locate only five copies in North America.
