A unique bookwork, stamped “23. Sep. 1979 21. Dez. 1979” to the upper cover, made by Barbara Schmidt-Heins (b. 1949).

[100] leaves of different stocks & colors. Large 4to (292 x 210 mm.), orig. stamped semi-stiff gray covers, glued spine. N.p.: [1979].

A wonderful book that records its own creation over the course of nearly two months. The Schmidt-Heins twins frequently invoke time as a component of their books; this example by Barbara is composed of printed leaves with “Zeit” in red at the top and the following text below: “Jahrthausend / Jahrhundert / Jahrzehnt / Jahr / Monat / Woche / Tag / Stunde / Minute / Sekunde.” Whenever Schmidt-Heins worked on this book, she filled in the aforementioned information by pencil. Thick paper sheets of various colors are interspersed throughout.

In excellent condition. Signed on the inside of the lower cover.
