Paris: BIEF, 1958-60
Seven numbers in six issues including the double number 10/11. Uniformly 25 x 30cm. 3 to 7 pages per. Directeur Gerard Legrand. All illustrated with numerous b/w drawings and reproductions of paintings and photographs. Photographic wrappers bound into printed publisher’s paper over boards. An incomplete run of this revue, which was conceived of as a supplement to “Surrealisme Meme”.
BIEF is more of a polemic vehicle, rather than an art journal. Strident and wickedly funny at times. Contributions by Breton, Bedouin, Dax, Toyen, Paalen, Arp, Pierre, Peret, Lebel, Mayoux, Schuster, Mitrani, et. al. All very good complete with publisher’s inserts and index.
Price is for all 7 numbers as a group.
