Voss, Jan

(Düsseldorf.). 1974
Jan Voss' unique artist book / multiple: 'Treibsatz.'

From the edition limited to 15 copies, each signed and numbered by the artist in pencil to the inner rear board.

Although 'Treibsatz' was issued by Voss as an edition, each copy is drawn and written by hand and is therefore unique.

The text in its entirety reads 'Wenn die Flut kommt, strandet mit ihren Wellen allerlei Zeug, und es ist ein Vergnügen, sich aufzumachen, und dem Samen zu folgen, und die Gegenstände aufzulesen, und sie für ein paar Gezeiten mit sich zu tragen, bevor der Sog der Ebbe sie zurückzieht ins Meer.'
[36 doubled leaves]. 8vo. (212 x 152 mm). Watercolour illustrations with integrated text in ink on uncut doubled pages recto and verso throughout. Original publisher's taped boards with manuscript title 'TREIBSATZ' in ink to front board.
