Bruxelles Hambourg: Editions Lebeer Hossmann, 1983. First edition. Paperback. Artist book collaboration between fluxus artists George Brecht and Alison Knowles. Called a "bean-book" in the collophon which states that this book is based on illustrations from the "Sprach-Brockhaus - Deutsches Worterbuch fur jedermann" Verlag Eberhard Brockhaus, Wiesbaden 1947. Some of the legends and labels of the original have been replaced by the authors (sometimes at random by George Brecht, with the names of beans from the Alison Knowles collection). Published in February 1983 in an edition of eighty copies (of which this copy is hand-numbered 80) plus 8 hors commerce reserved for the authors and publisher. The edition has been silk-screen-printed on simili-japon by Roel Goussey and hand-bound by Liliane Gerard. Each copy is accompanied by an original silk-screen print hand-annotated by Alison Knowles, and signed by the authors. SIGNED by both artists on the colophon page as well as the laid in silk-screen print which, in this instance, has been annotated by Knowles as follows " The Scarlet Runner draws the white butterfly" A fine copy. In addition, this copy has been INSCRIBED by the artists to fellow fluxus artists Jackson Mac Low and Anne Tardos. A scarce and beautiful production. Only two copies noted in WorldCat. Fine.
