Exhibition postcard: Postal Art Show (August 1975).

Printed on both sides, addressee written in ms. Postcard, mailed. Amsterdam: 1975.

Very rare postcard announcing one of the earliest exhibitions at Other Books and So. Ulises Carrión (1941-89) and Aart van Barneveld (1951-90) opened the bookshop’s doors on 15 April 1975, and the space’s inaugural exhibition was Boeken en linguïstische objecten uit allerlei landen [Books and linguistic objects from all sorts of countries] for the month of May.

The recto of this postcard announces the extension of an exhibition at drukhuis, a space one door down from Other Books and So (Herengracht 227). On the verso is a brief mention of the latter’s presentation Postal Art Show. This may well be the only printed announcement of the show.


Catalogue 237: Ulises Carrión (2022), p. 180 as “Briefkarten van kunstenaars.”.

Price: $200.00
