Gesammelte Werke Band 1 / Collected Works Volume 1 (Inscribed); 2 Bilderbucher / 2 Picture Books (Inscribed Copy)

Stuttgart, London and Reykjavik: Edition Hansjorg Mayer, 1976. First edition. Spiral_bound. Volume 1 of the collected artist books of Dieter Roth. Decorated clamshell cardboard box containing two distinct "children's books" and a separate one page sheet with title and printing information. From an edition of one thousand copies. The first book is entitled Kinderbuch and consists of 28 pp of color screenprints and die-cuts. Fine condition in plastic spiral binding. The second book, Bilderbuch, is 23 pp, housed in a two-ring binder and contains color acetate and white paper, die cut. A near fine copy. The box itself shows some heavy wear with splits at corners and some creases as if a weight was placed on it at some point. This copy benefits, however, from the fact that it has been INSCRIBED by Roth to fellow RISD artist/photographer Mary Kocol. The inscription is dated May 1986 in Providence which was the time and place of a Dieter Roth retrospective exhibit at The Rhode Island School of Design. Dieter spent a year at RISD in the mid-1960's as a visiting artist. Although he signed many books in his lifetime, books inscribed by Dieter are not common, and copies inscribed to fellow artists are even more desirable. Listed in Aaron's and Roth's In Numbers - Serial Publications by Artists Since 1955. Very Good. Item #14482
