Darboven, Hanne

Hamburg. Self-published by the artist. 1976
Hanne Darboven's numerical sequential artist book, self-published and supposedly published in an edition of 200 copies.

Numbers are repetitively spelt out and printed in ever-repeating sequences. Printed notations in the margins depict random dates in one century.

Only a certain unknown number of copies were actually bound in wrappers. This is a set of six uncut copies from the edition, each presented without covers, all wrapped together in original brown packing paper, handstamped by Darboven and annotated with black marker pen.
