Neuwed, Hermann Luchterhand Verlag, n.d. (1969)
Nos 1-11, in the original envelopes with the silver coloured binder in the first envelope. An extremely hard to find (especially with the envelopes) complete if un-made up set of this ‘mail novel’ by Faecke and Vostell, complete with the bound in 45rpm record multiple (music by Faecke) in no. 3. The work contains many b/w images (most full page) and fold outs by Vostell – including many de/collage images (of wrecked cars, objects for destroying things, some appropriated pornographic imagery, etc.). One mailing envelope (nr 1) has been somewhat water damaged in the past (although the contents are fine since they were removed before the water damage occurred) but otherwise this is a very good and complete collection. This copy is signed and numbered (from an edition of 200) by both artists on the back cover (with Vostell’s signature in part deliberately over an applied elastoplast). An artistic part-work cum mail art event.
