The artist’s book “Side by Side” was first published in 1971 by Koenig Brothers in an edition of 600. This second and larger edition is a reprint. Note on the inside cover at the back of the book: ‘The linens used to bind “Side by Side” were individually hand-marbled by Gilbert & George’. Hence each linen bound cover is unique.
