Many text illus. 30 pp. Large 4to, orig. printed wrappers, staple-bound. Toronto: 1979.

A very rare catalogue of video art issued by Art Metropole, the first North American large-scale distributor of artists’ books and publications. This was their inaugural catalogue dedicated to video works, all of which were available for rent. We find works by Acconci, Ant Farm, Susan Britton, Colin Campbell, Filliou, General Idea, Dan Graham, Michael Hayden, Nancy Holt, Patricia Plattner, Alan Sondheim, Lisa Steele, etc. Numerous stills illustrate many of the entries.

In fine condition. We are only able to locate the copy at the National Gallery of Canada, which holds the Art Metropole Collection.
