BROCHURE FOR SUR MARCEL DUCHAMP DESIGNED BY DUCHAMP. 1959.

£600.00

London: The Trianon Press, n.d. (1959)
31.5 x 13cm, (closed size) which opens out to 31.5 x 64cm. This is the rare brochure released in very small numbers by the Press to promote the forthcoming monograph on Duchamp. The brochure was designed by Duchamp and the design was also intended to also be the dust jacket for the book but it was ultimately rejected. This brochure has a collage of various of Duchamp’s works on the inside (which would have been unusual for a dust jacket) and the design was refolded in a rather imaginative way to create this piece of Duchamp ephemera. This is not in The Complete Works of Marcel Duchamp (it should be) but is very related to Nr 563 “Design for “Sur Marcel Duchamp”. As we say above – rare.
