68 blue illus. on yellow paper.  pp. 12mo (145 x 104 mm.), beige patterned wrappers, staple-bound. [Hamburg: Galerie Ascan Crone, 1986].
Scarce Martin Kippenberger (1953-97) exhibition catalogue, designed by the artist; printed in an edition of ca. 1000 copies, according to Koch. It contains reproductions of Kippenberger’s unpolished drawings mimicking dramatic comic book illustrations.
“The artist book 14.000.000, - für ein Hallöchen [14,000,000, - for a Little ‘Hi there’] (dedicated to Hubert Kiecol) was published to accompany the exhibition of the same name from 15 May to 21 June 1986 at the Galerie Ascan Crone in Hamburg, and contains reproductions of drawings with typewritten texts worked in.”–Koch.
In excellent condition. WorldCat locates five copies in the United States (four of which are erroneously dated 1990).
