Slipcase a little dusty-smudged and rubbed. Martin Rogers was a British printer, sculptor, and publisher, who founded the Small Publishers Fair in London. "[He] was the exemplar of a condition that had become prevalent in the post nineteen-sixties. He had moved the physical materials of his work to the production of multiple objects in printed form, to books and publication, eventually embracing the idea of publishing as the platform for the work. At the same time, in the way he avoided the side-track, even the cul-de-sac, of the so-called artists book, he becomes emblematic of that repositioning.The course of his work from film to print, from constructed object to be photographed or as a stand-alone piece, to the finished book, is an exemplary development. At the same time there is a real attachment to the detail of a personal life. That he moved from the individual work to the whole platform of publishing is its achievement" (Simon Cutts, Coracle Gallery). Bookseller Inventory # D11632
