15 black & white illus. 62 pp. Small 8vo, printed blue wrappers. Berlin: Wewerka & Weiss Galerie, 1991.
Scarce Martin Kippenberger (1953-97) publication, edition of ca. 1000 copies, according to Koch.
“In 1991 Kippenberger sent his student Matthias Schaufler on a 500 km walk through Africa. The travel report was reworked by Kippenberger, with witty drawings added and texts by Jutta Koether and Barbara Straka. Published to accompany the exhibition The Hot Tour at the Galerie Wewerka & Weiss, Berlin, from 2 November to 21 December 1991, the book echoes the cover design and format of the ‘Reclam Universalbibliothek’ series.”–Koch.
A fine copy.
