Multiple World: An International Survey of Artists’ Books.

[17] leaves. Square 4to, semi-stiff printed wrappers, metal spiral-bound. Atlanta: 1994.

A wonderfully designed catalogue for the exhibition held at the Atlanta College of Art Gallery from 28 January to 4 March. The exhibition was engineered by Judith Hoffberg and Peter Frank, two keen observers of the artist’s book’s evolution in the United States. The exhibition consisted of loans from the collections of Printed Matter, Tony Zwicker, Granary Books, Nexus Press, Dick Higgins, etc. Most of this volume is taken up by the curators’ essay, which is inventively laid-out. With a bibliography and checklist at the end. The artists featured included Alatalo, Bloom, Deisler, Drucker, Ehrenberg, Ely, Long, J. Lyons, Ohtake, Piper, K. A. Smith, Stokes, Tuttle, van Horn, etc.

In fine condition.
