About this Item

Folio. (12)ff. One of five copies with the original collages. Honegger's nine compositions are comprised of abstract lithographs with added colorful collage elements. On several pages, the images are accompanied by poetry by Gessner; on others, the composition fills the entire space of the page spread. A Swiss national who established himself in New York and Paris in the late 1950s, Honegger was aligned early in his career with concrete art, and the typographical arrangement of the poetry in this collection reflects the influence of that aesthetic movement. Loose, as issued, in lithographed wrappers of heavy card. With the original glassine. Some light spots of foxing to a few pages, else very fine. Bookseller Inventory # 23253
