THE ART OF BOOKS & SMALL PRINT PUBLICATIONS

This is a blog on artist books, artist notebooks, magazines, poetry editions and other small print publications. Like FRIOUR is the Icelandic word for peace, BOKLIST are the Icelandic words for book (bok) and art (list). This is also a group blog in which those who are invited can upload their own books and/or comments.

WASTED ANGELS

Book edition and catalogue of the Wasted Angels project, produced by the Cultural Center LES CHIROUX in Li├Ęge, Belgium in 2001.

Size: 17 X 24 cm

Pages: 148

Starting point of the project was this phrase by Jean Cocteau: "The ideal being is an angel wasted by love".

Little background info on why a cultural center invested in producing and diffusing a book.

A few years earlier a first mail art project was organized in the center but the whole collection disappeared mysteriously (I'm convinced a mail artist stole everything). The center was quite embarrassed and promised a second show and a good catalogue to "repay" for the loss of the mail art. Surreal? Yes, but let there be no mistake: Belgium invented surrealism and still is a quite surreal country. Breton never reached the ankles of Magritte (my vision, GV)


Pages with works by Honoria (USA), Fosseprez (Belgium), Hacker (Germany), Julliard (France), Pollaci (Italy) and Altemus (USA).
