Artist book, this one of 200 numbered copies, signed by Atkinson and Baldwin.

The Art & Language group was founded in 1967/8 in the United Kingdom by artists Terry Atkinson, David Bainbridge, Michael Baldwin and Harold Hurrell, four artists who began collaborating around 1966 while teaching art in Coventry. The name of the group was derived from their journal Art-Language, which existed as a work in conversation as early as 1966. Charles Harrison and Mel Ramsden joined the group in 1970, and between 1968 and 1982 up to 50 people were associated with the group. Others involved with the group from the early 1970s included Ian Burn, Michael Corris, Preston Heller, Graham Howard, Joseph Kosuth, Andrew Menard, Terry Smith and from Coventry Philip Pilkington and David Rushton.
