The catalogue for an important exhibition of Davi Det Hompson’s oeuvre that took place at Bound & Unbound’s premises. It begins with an important essay by Clive Phillpot on Hompson’s works, followed by a biography, chronology of Hompson’s exhibitions, the artist’s C.V., and finally the exhibition checklist. The majority of the materials exhibited were for sale. The display presented Hompson’s early artists’ books, pamphlets, some of his wordworks, posters, and exhibition catalogues.

With this catalogue, we also include a limited edition silkscreened folding print by Hompson — 120 copies and signed by the artist — that was mailed separately or available for sale at the exhibition for $7.00, the printed press release, and the postcard announcement for the show.

All in fine condition, with the two original mailed envelopes.
