Many color illus. 135 pp. Oblong 4to (212 x 300 mm.), pictorial semi-stiff wrappers. Buenos Aires: 2013.

First and only edition of the rare Carrión catalogue raisonné; we locate just one copy in North American institutions. This is an essential book for understanding Carrión’s life and work, not just for its recording of all of his known bookworks (unique and editioned), but also for the insightful essay by Heriberto Yepez, entitled “The Four Periods of Ulises Carrion,” published here for the first time and not reprinted since.

The catalogue records each of the artist’s books with several pictures, beginning with La Muerte de Miss O. (1966), then the final bookwork published during his lifetime, For Fans and Scholars Alike (1987), and finally posthumous publications and re-publications of his earliest bookworks. The majority of Carrión’s earlier books were made in small editions, and today are extremely scarce. Most interestingly, this book has a section for the artist’s “One-of-a-Kind Bookworks”; these are largely unknown and are now held at the Archivo Lafuente outside of Santander, Spain.

In very good condition; minor wear to the extremities.
