THIS. CEOLFRITH VISUAL ARTS NR 2. 1971. THE SCARCE SECOND PUBLICATION BY THE BOOKSHOP/PRESS.

£195.00

Sunderland: Ceolfrith Press, n.d. (1971)

30 x 23.5cm, transparent plastic bag with printed closure wrapper (which overlaps the front and back of the top of the bag) content of 8, 26.5 x 21cm, mostly 1pp offset sheets all designed by Robin Crozier and printed in facsimile. This was both an artist’s book and exhibition catalogue for the show at Ceolfrith. There is a price list of exhibited works as the final 2pp sheet.

This was the second of the Ceolfrith Books catalogues/artists books (the best known of which are the Ian Hamilton Finlay and John Furnival publications which were much more extensive) and was published in only 300 copies but only 100 were placed on sale aside from the “deluxe” copies with additional material. Very minor wear to the plastic bag and the original staples keeping the closure have been carefully removed and two vintage, slightly rusty, paper clips used to keep it in place. Scarce.
