by Chopin, Henri

Oversized portfolio containing title card, two hand-numbered and signed typographic etchings (zincogravures); a third signed typographic etching with black silhouette effect, numbered to verso; numbered colophon page; and a smaller matted and signed typewriter poem.

Paris/Mainz (Éditions F. Despalles) 1992. Copy no. 5 of a limited edition of 60. This impressive portfolio is an excellent example of the work and aesthetic of one of the most important European concrete and sound poets. His typewriter poems, or dactylopoèmes, in particular are housed in important art collections all over the world. Very scarce; as of July 2019, WorldCat only locates one holding of this limited-edition portfolio in North America.
