About This Item

Brooklyn, NY: Assembling Press, 1980. First printing. Paperback. Very Good. (48) pp., 8vo. A "philosophic artist's book," in stapled self-wrappers, accompanied by a single folded printed sheet with introductory text ("Open Structure for a Philosophical Experiment," reprinted from A Critical Assembling, 1979), enclosed in clasp envelope with printed cover label. From the artist's site: "A loop of thread connects the midpoint of each page. The work explores various dimensions of the book form through four series of diagrams accompanied by texts and instructions. These graphic-textual progressions migrate over the outer margin of adjacent pages, through the gutter on the inside of a folded sheet, through the gutter on the outside of a folded sheet, or across the gutter from one page to the next." Very faint indentations from back of clasp to introductory sheet and booklet, contents otherwise fine; envelope lightly rumpled and faded at edges, cover label scuffed and with some very light bleed-through of adhesive. Overall, a very good copy of an uncommon item.
