About This Item

London (Victoria Miro Gallery & Coracle Press), 1987.. Multiple. Edition limited to 50 copies, signed and numbered by the artist and author in the colophon. A collaborative edition of text and image, in which a poem by Cutts is set within a complex multiple by Tuttle, in "wood, aluminum, canvas, paper, wire, ink, paint" (as noted in the colophon), and the ensemble encased in a lidded wooden box. Contents comprise the Cutts text ("the green/ calyx of/ the petals/ of wallpaper/ &"), printed in red on a large folding sheet or irregular dimensions, the verso of which features a spray painting by Tuttle in blue; a unique, large, handcut, gold-painted canvas construction by Tuttle, with wire elements (initialled by the artist on the verso); and a section of colored wallpaper. A colophon, printed on brown kraft paper (matching that of the Cutts poem) wrapped around a floating panel, is attached to the interior of the lid of the box. The box, imprinted with the title, features two decorative aluminum clasps at the sides, designed by Tuttle, cast from twisted cigarette foil papers. Box dimensions: 495 x 353 x 74 mm. (ca. 19 1/2 x 13 7/8 x 3 inches). In this copy, the two staples which originally attached one edge of the text to the canvas construction have been removed, making accessible all elements of the ensemble. The Cutts text is reinforced with tape at the central fold.
