Mirobolus, Macadam et Cie, Hautes Pâtes de Jean Dubuffet. Par Michel Tapié

Dubuffet, Jean

Paris. René Drouin. 1946
The scarce édition de tête with Dubuffet's original colour lithograph.

From the edition limited to 730 numbered copies, with this one of 30 on fort vélin d'Arches with Dubuffet's original colour lithograph as frontispiece (Suite de visages bronzés) and signed in blue ink by Tapié, Dubuffet and Drouin; 700 copies on papiers de couleurs were also issued.

A separate 'tirage à part' of 65 copies of the lithograph was also printed (5 on Japon and 60 on Arches including 5 hors commerce), but was destroyed by Dubuffet. The lithograph, apart from two proofs, exists only in the édition de tête examples of Mirobolus, Macadam et Cie. The book was printed at l'Imprimerie Union, Paris.
