The Black Book

Brussels: Herman Daled, 1969. First edition. Loose Sheets. Large delicate single sheet of very thin black tissue paper with tiny print in gold in the middle of the sheet. The sheet measures 19 1/4" tall x 14 1/4" wide. An artist "book" created by Byars in 1969. The text which is almost unreadable due to the tiny size consists of one hundred questions. The sheets were maintained rolled for some time and were only distributed later at a performance in 1971 to guests at Foret de Soignes near Brussels, Belgium in February 22, 1971. This example has been laid flat now for some time and there is only minor evidence remaining of any creases from having been folded or rolled in the past. Incredibly fragile, this item will require additional shipping charges to protect it in the mailing process. Near Fine. Item #29903

Price: $1,500.00
