Images Nr. 3 (January 2010). Steven LEIBER, bookseller.

Images Nr. 3 (January 2010).

Black & white and color illus. throughout. 27 unnumbered leaves. Large 4to (266 x 235 mm.), orig. printed semi-stiff wrappers (lower cover a trifle soiled), title on spine. San Francisco: January 2010.

A rare Leiber catalogue (no. 50) modeled after publications by Dan Graham; WorldCat records only two copies. It offers books by Acconci, Applebroog, Boltanski, Broodthaers, Carrión, Dibbets, Duchamp, Filliou, Haring, Huebler, Kippenberger, Kosuth, Kruger, LeWitt, Messager, Ono, Prince, Vautier, Wool, etc. There are also a number of scarce exhibition catalogues and art periodicals. The cover of each item is reproduced at several points in the text. In total 159 items are listed. Laid-in is a single-leaf insert describing a run of Acconci’s periodical 0 to 9.

Leiber also devoted four pages of this catalogue to works by four contemporary artists in San Francisco, one of which is a door-tag pasted to the page and present in this copy. These “page works” are accompanied by the curator and writer Adrienne Skye Roberts’s essay “The Creation of Multiple Publics Through the Work of Four Contemporary San Francisco Artists.”

A very good copy. Printed in an edition of 300 copies. The previous owner has marked a handful of entries with an “M.”
