[From head of first page]: Intermedia: Special European & Latin American Issue.

Several eraser-stamped illus. in the text and black & white illus. throughout. Nine folded newsprint sheets (ca. 350 x 260 mm.) forming [36] pp. San Francisco: [1994-95].

A rare and early Leiber catalogue (no. 20) devoted to Latin American mail art and Eastern European performance art. This catalogue mimics Harley Lond’s journal InterMedia: An Interdisciplinary Journal of the Arts, Resources and Communications, by and for the Communicator/Artist, which was issued from 1974 to 1979.

“[This catalogue] was an imagined issue (no. 9, c. 1979) of the periodical InterMedia. Contributions had been sent to the magazine; however, the issue was never published. Most of the works offered in Steven Leiber’s catalog were those works submitted for publication in InterMedia in 1979 (acquired through Harley Lond, the editor of InterMedia). All eraser stamps used in the catalog were designed by Pawel Petasz (Elblag, Poland) and borrowed from Bill Gaglione (a.k.a. Dadaland, San Francisco) for use in this publication.”–Steven Leiber Catalogs.
