Letters to Joseph Beuys

James Lee Byars
Cantz Verlag
18 × 24 × 3 cm

Over the course of sixteen years, Joseph Beuys received more than a hundred letters from James Lee Byars, without ever writing back. This volume compiles the complete set of the elaborately designed correspondance, from hastily scrawled postcards to ornate Japanese tissue peices. A valuable insight into the work of both Byars and Beuys.
