Extra Art : A Survey of Artists' Ephemera 1960 - 1999


Steven Leiber was a genius, and this book - full of years of meticulous research and study - proves it. Packed full of ephemera by 100s of artists, Leiber catalogues, documents and stories the path this printed matter, often casually regarded as discarded matter [or discardable matter]. More than just gallery announcements, flyers, posters, etc. - artists' ephemera is, like artists' books, the lifeblood of engaging materials produced by artists and accessible to the public at large for no or low cost. Revel in its glory found within this book. Includes works by artists Carl Andre, John Baldessari, Joseph Beuys, Marcel Broodthaers, Bruce Conner, Jan Dibbets, Gilbert & George, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Sol Lewitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Yoko Ono and John Lennon, Raymond Pettibon, Edward Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Lawrence Weiner and many others. Extra cool cover design by Dave Muller.
