Titre : Grapefruit
Reliure : Soft cover
Etat du livre : Near Fine
Edition : 1st Edition
Original Japanese self-produced edition, extraordinarily rare, in fine condition. White thin card covers. Spine and covers totally intact and very good indeed i.e. slight bits of time staining, far better than the only other copy that 3 years ago came to light and sold at that time for net for £13,500. 150 pieces comprise the original manuscript of Yoko Ono’s pivotal 1964 work Grapefruit. Assembled into an artists book, originally published in Tokyo in a limited edition of 500 printed from the original small, rectilinear cards she made each containing simple, hand-typed instructions; such as ‘Imagine the clouds dripping. Dig a hole in your garden to put them in.’ (Cloud Piece, 1963) This format became a crucial precursor to conceptualism. Self published edition - artists’ book. N° de réf. du libraire 205
