114 Artists: Signatures.

Artists’ signatures in facsimile on rectos. 231 pp. Small 4to (142 x 120 mm.), orig. semi-stiff printed wrappers, plastic spiral bound. San Francisco: July 2002.

A scarce Leiber catalogue (no. 41), offering the usual impressive selection of artists’ books, periodicals, ephemera, and artworks. Items are listed on versos, with each artists’ reproduced signature on the recto. This format was inspired by Wolfgang Pfaffe’s very rare self-published photobook Portraits & Signaturen (1977), which consists of amusing portraits of artists who exhibited at documenta 6 along with their signatures. An index of signatures is found on both wrappers of the present volume.

This catalogue lists items by or related to Baldessari, Beuys, Boltanski, Broodthaers, Darboven, Duchamp, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Flavin, Gilbert & George, Guerrilla Art Action Group, Dick Higgins, Hompson, Kaprow, Koons, Kostelanetz, LeWitt, Paik, Pettibon, Pistoletto, Rauschenberg, Roth, Schneemann, Joyce Cutler Shaw, Barbara T. Smith, Keith A. Smith, Spoerri, Tuttle, Vostell, Warhol, etc.

Fine copy. Produced in an edition of around 100 copies.
