£195.00

Malmo: Editions du Miroir, n.d. (1974)

24.5 x 17.5cm, 32pp (printed recto only) plus card covers. Artist’s book investigating the algae, lichens, plants, seaweed, seashells, stones and insects found on the beach in Malmo where Gette had been visiting since 1969. The book reproduces the names of the various plants and images in b/w of the various items he found as well as temperature charts. Again Gette’s scientific background was used to try to catalogue an area of public activity and define objectively what is meant by the term “beach”. Limitation unknown but scarce. VG+.
