17 x 8 x 2cm, found book (Le Blocus by Erckmann Chatrian) which has been deliberately and extensively (perhaps 40% of the original book remains) burnt by Latham and then a four pages in the middle of the book painted in red and orange.
A unique sculptural bookwork by Latham – made in 1959 – and is one of the artist’s first SKOOBS (books backwards) that he later became well known for.
There is some dried white plaster on the back cover which may suggest this was mounted somewhere at some point but else it is as it is.
Early Skoobs are extremely hard to find and all are important objects in the history of conceptual art.
