Eckernförde: Nemo, 1987. First edition. 4to, unpaginated; printed wraps. One of a limited edition of 200 signed and numbered copies.
A monumental artist's book, consisting of a five panel leporello foldout of thick card stock which features blindstamped images of Manhattan buildings isolated down to the geometric form of the letter "E", followed by excerpts of stock reports from a 1987 issue of the Wall Street Journal. An impactful exploration of architecture, capitalism and language from a German artist who should be far better known on these shores, and who often referenced architecture in his work. Item #24660
