2 exhibitions of books produced by fine art publisher Hansjörg Mayer.
Original illustrated exhibition poster printed in two colours on perforated paper and folded into 16 panels (25 x 18 cm when folded). London: Bookworks/ Nigel Greenwood Books, 1986.
Paper rather fragile where folded due to the perforated format.

A clever poster to advertise two exhibitions of book works published by Edition Hansjörg Mayer at Bookworks and Nigel Greenwood Books in 1986. The exhibitions featured editions, artworks and publications by Richard Hamilton, Liliane Lijn, Tom Philips, and others. The show at Nigel Greenwood Books highlighted the newly published Volume 39 in the Collected Works of Dieter Roth, together with other Roth publications and original works.

The poster states: 'Mayer, who is probably best known for publishing the work of Dieter Roth, has become renowned for a particularly high standard of print quality and presentation, which combined with the ideas of a particular artist, has resulted in a superb body of work. Such success is rare in the world of commercially produced books, which often lack the sensitivity Mayer is able to achieve'.

A scarce piece of ephemera that illustrates the dynamic platform given to artist books in London during the 1980s.
