A Succulent Dilemma.

Many black & white illus. 30 long vertical sheets (ca. 430 x 282 mm.), printed on rectos only, stapled at head. [From final sheet]: San Francisco: August 2003.

A scarce Leiber catalogue (no. 42), offering 289 items of mail art, visual poetry, artists’ books and publications, exhibition catalogues, and rare ephemera; produced in an edition of ca. 100 copies. This profusely illustrated catalogue imitates Allan Kaprow’s DAYS OFF: A Calendar of Happenings, a commission by the Junior Council of the Museum of Modern Art, created in 1970.

Each page focuses on a particular theme or presents works by an individual artist or group, for example: “Bay Area Dadaists,” “Zines,” “Bananology,” “European Mail Art Exhibitions,” “Commonpress,” “Artists’ Stamps,” “Visual Poetry,” etc.

Near fine; faint and small stains to the verso of the last page. This example was never folded or rolled like most other copies. WorldCat records only three copies in North American institutions.

Steven Leiber Catalogs (2019), pp. 177-80.
