Books on Books

A book about extraordinary books that deliberately withdraw from the international book trade; A register containing 1,800 recent publications printed on paper, circulating without an International Standard Book Number (ISBN); A catalogue of micro- and alternative fairs held on four continents, an outline of media history, and manifestos from current avant-garde artists interspersed with texts on the international boom of artists’ books, written by active practitioners of self-publishing. This first, richly illustrated reader has been compiled by a team of editors uniting the areas of conceptual art, media theory, and cultural studies. It thus offers a navigational aid in the discovery of new, uncharted terrain.

Editors: Bernhard Cella, Leo Findeisen, Agnes Blaha

With contributions of Sylvie Boulanger, Ulises Carrión, Gabriele Cram, Constant Dullaart, Kenneth Goldsmith, Kit Hammonds.

Softcover, perfect-bound, b&w and colour.
