This book offers a new spin on the catalogue raisonné: a complete catalogue of the titles of all of the duo's works, from 1969 to the present, in the form of a continuous poetical index. The catalogue of works is also printed chronologically, and each title is identified with an acronym indicating its format.
pp. (180). 8vo. (215 x 154 mm). Designed by the artists, and typeset in caps throughout: the alphabetical arrangement of the catalogue reads from the 'front' of the book, with the chronological catalogue reading from the 'back'. Original publisher's printed glossy boards with illustration and text to covers and title to spine, later red cloth protective box.
