Koln: Walther Konig, 199
Three companion volumes. All uniformly 30 x 22.5cm. Spiral bound with hard board covers. Pagination varies: Notebook I: 78pp + 13pp notes; Notebook II: 156pp+ 5pp footnotes; Footnotes; Notebook III: 152pp+ 5pp notes. The wonderful facsimile reproduction of Brecht’s working diaries from 1958 – 1959 where he studied under John Cage – these notes wherein are an important reference and source for both artists’ work – Cage’s lectures are laid bare while Brecht’s already awakened interest in chance as a methodology for creation is noted herein and in the footnotes where he discusses these early days with publisher Konig and others. Fine.
PRICE IS FOR ALL THREE VOLUMES AS A SET
