Several illustrated ads. 30 pp. (incl. inside of wrappers) & ads on lower wrapper. Small 4to (217 x 175 mm.), orig. beige printed wrappers, staple-bound. [Amsterdam: 1976].
The very scarce third mail-order catalogue issued by Ulises Carrión’s bookstore and event space. These catalogues — a total of four were issued — are essential documents relating to the distribution of artists’ books in Europe, as well as Carrión’s life as a prolific artist, bookseller, theorist of the book, and curator.
The present catalogue offers books, periodicals, multiples, records, cassettes, posters, music, and postcards. It includes work by Mirella Bentivoglio, Carrión, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Michael Gibbs, Dick Higgins, Marshall McLuhan, Oldenburg, Bern Porter, de Vries, Broodthaers, Filliou, Davi Det Hompson, Iannone, Alison Knowles, LeWitt, Raul Marroquin, Muntadas, Dieter Roth, Schneemann, Mieko Shiomi, Endre Tot, Jiri Valoch, Weiner, etc., etc. We also note advertisements for Ecart, Fandangos, and Guy Schraenen Editeur.
In fine condition. This copy, with the address label adhered to the upper wrapper with two stamps, was sent to Tjeerd Deelstra (b. 1938), the collector and Fluxus adherent. Deelstra has written notes about books of interest on the other side of the label’s fold.
❧ Not pictured in Guy Schraenen, ed., Dear reader. Don’t read. (2016).
