Rubber Stamp Books (February 1979).

Illus. throughout. [4] printed sheets, orig. craft paper wrappers, staple-bound. Hou, Denmark: Egmont Højskolen, Feb. 1979.

A scarce exhibition catalogue dedicated to books with rubber-stamped illustrations, curated by Ulises Carrión (1941-89). His introduction is printed in Danish and English: “Time pressures didn’t allow for a wide research, but I believe that the show includes most if not all the significant artists in this field. Some available catalogues and anthologies have been included because they possess a reasonable coherence in character, theme, or intentions. These criteria, rather than dictionary definitions, were also applied when deciding what was to be considered as being ‘a book.’ The show includes quite a number of unbound works; in all cases, however, they consist of a series of loose works that have been put between the same covers and under a common name. Many of the included items were lent by Aart van Barneveld from the Stempelpaats in Amsterdam.”

The exhibition featured the works of Anna Banana, Luciano Bartolini, Peter van Beveren, Cozette de Charmoy, Robert Jacks, Ray di Palma, Pawel Petasz, Dieter Roth, Ruedi Schill, Gabor Toth, Dick Walraven, etc. A few of the pieces are illustrated.

In fine condition. With the stamps of Niels Lomholt’s Lomholt Formular Press and the Other Books and So Archive on the verso of the first leaf.
