96 Piccadillies. Collected Works Volume 36. - Dieter Roth

ROTH, Dieter.
96 Piccadillies. Collected Works Volume 36.
Small 4to. Unpaginated. Full-colour illustrations throughout with glossy illustrated card wrappers. Stuttgart: Edition Hansjörg Mayer, 1977.
A fine copy.

Clever artist book reproducing a series of artworks made by Roth that were inspired by a typical postcard image of Piccadilly Circus. The image undergoes varying treatments by Roth from overprinting in Day-Glo colours, sub-merging it in a fog, and almost completely painting out the image and adding a layer of cocoa powder to the surface. The last section of works are made in collaboration with artist Richard Hamilton, whose wife gave the artist the original postcard. Each page of the book may be separated and sent as a postcard. With a forward by the artist in German and English.
