Product Description

First artist's book by Morris. Entirely designed by the artist, it has been conceived in conjunction with a personal exhibition at Leo Castelli Gallery in New York in the Fall 1998. It was included in an installation entitled "The Rationed Years" (composed of paintings, school desks, scuptures, and a sound piece). The text as well as the drawings of the special edition refer to World War II and to Morris' own memory of this period.

Printed on Z-offset paper at La Queue du Tigre, Geneva. Hardcover printed in military green by silkscreen with a vignette printed by letterpress on buff paper. Flyleaves reproduce a collage designed by the artist for the book.
