Feldmann, Hans-Peter

Düsseldorf. Wiener Secession. 1994
The playful artist book by Hans-Peter Feldmann.

Feldmann's 'Ferien', which includes a packet of found colour reproduction photographs, is intended as a do-it-yourself holiday album. The photographs are to be inserted in any order, to be chosen by the reader or at random, to form a self-created holiday. There are some duplicates.

'Die Bilder wurden unsortiert vorgefunden, so mag es jedem selbst überlassen sein, die Photos nach Zufallsprinzip oder nach anderen Kriterien zu ordnen.' (From Feldmann's text).

Original publisher's glossy blue printed wrappers with illustration and title to front wrapper, with 108 photographs (each 80 x 120 mm) loose as issued in paper bag.
