The Sabian Exercise. George Herms.

The Sabian Exercise

Los Angeles: Love Press, 1979. First edition. 4to, 360 loose leaves housed in twelve envelopes, with printed title page, housed in an a large hand-colored cardboard box. One of a limited edition of 1000 copies.

Artist's book by Herms, in which for one year one drawing a day was created based on Sabian symbols originally received by clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler, along with psychological text interpretations of each symbol by Dane Rudyhar.

A beautiful and consuming project - it seems unlikely that the full run of the book was produced, given the time it must have taken to create each box.

Fine. Item #23748
