Although this copy is part of a second edition, this artist’s book is opposite to the first edition completely handwritten by Ulises Carrión. The first edition was typewritten, and therefore perhaps more personal.

On one particular day, Carrión was very happy to find the fashion books of a wallpaper company on the street in front of Rath & Doodeheefver, well-known for their outstanding quality (now in the collection of the Amsterdam Museum). He cut them to become the pages of his book “Tell me what sort of wallpaper your room has and I will tell you who you are”. He used the different designs for the identification of the rooms, such as: my sister’s room, my guestroom, my psychiatrists’ room. Some booklets were sold and others were given away, and soon a second edition of 50 copies was required, made with handwritten designations as opposed to the first series’ typewritten designations. A copy of this wallpaper book is in the collection of Stedelijk Museum. Tineke Reijnders, 2017

ULISES CARRIÓN, Arguments, 1973 [artist’s book, signed]

ULISES CARRIÓN, Arguments, 1973
22,4 x 15,3 cm
52 pp., SC
signed
edition 400 of which 200 are printed on Strathmore Grandee (colour) paper
published by Beau Geste Press, Cullompton, Devon, England
slight scuffing on top of front cover
here signed
extremely rare
€ 4.850,-

Each of the 25 Arguments is hand numbered, with corrections on the last three pages. Although the cover shows some scuffing this copy is extremely rare, since it has been hand signed by the author and maker of the book. On the title page the artist’s book is signed in print, but here also hand signed on the fly leave in the front. When I bought this at Other Books and So the artist offered me to sign his book. As such this copy can be considered as a signed autonomous art work. KvG
