About this Item

small 4to. Gray paper covered boards opening from either end with pages accordian style. 10 leaves printed on both sides. Limited to 20 numbered copies signed by Gerard and Best.

Images and text for Tag on one side of the book, and images and text for Nacht on the other. Grey endboards with title. "Day and Night was the result of an invitation to Fritz Best to make a book in the paper medium in my Berlin workshop. He had been in and out of the workshop for months, seen how many of the techniques function, but still had many questions. The theme he chose was the departure from Berlin, as he was to leave that year back to London and I was to move to the Rhineland. The book reflects all of the chaotic conditions in Berlin: traffic, dogs, the remains of the wall, office work and ends with a relaxing bottle of beer. All of the images are done in paper pulp using stencil techniques; the text was printed in silver, using nylon cliches. This is Fritz Best's first book." - Gerard. Gray paper covered boards opening from either end with pages accordian style. Bookseller Inventory # 124330
