EFFESCHIADEN. MEDIA NEWS NR 4. 1973. A UNIQUE HAND COLOURED COPY OF A RARE CONCEPTUAL WORK SIGNED BY THE ARTIST ON THE COVER

£600.00

Dusseldorf: Mediacontact, 1973
30.5 x 21.5cm, 23pp (all recto only). Card covers front and back.Stapled top right. Content of a b/w reproduction of a photograph of the artist in performance and a series of 22 drawings (all lithographs)with texts in English and German beneath.

Every drawing has been hand coloured by the artist using crayons in multiple colours (some of the colours have been abstractly daubed on the front cover also).

This is a single number (nr 4) of a series of such artist’s publication released by Dietmar Kirves who also published Art Information also based in Dusseldorf at the same time. The design of the book (especially the cover) reflects that almost exactly of Art Information. This is one of a few, unstated, deluxe copies of the release where the colours have been applied by hand (thus each being unique) and is signed on the cover in pencil by Schwegler. The cover is browned and because it is oversized compared with the inner pages has some edge wear and tear but nonetheless this is a very scarce item (Art Information is hard to find- this publication is virtually unknown despite its common origins and common distribution).
