Each print is signed and numbered in pencil by the artist, and housed within a bifolium sheet printed with the title. On the inside of the first bifolium sheet, which bears the title and contents, Eichenberg's wife has signed her name and indicated that she designed the book. Antonie was Fritz's wife.

        Richard Meier Architect 1,2,3,4 [Complete Set]

      New York: Rizzoli, 1984-2004 First Editions of each monograph regarding the work of architect Richard Meier. Square, 4 Volumes. Volume 1 is Fine in a near fine dust jacket, and the remaining volumes 2-4 are fine in fine dust jackets. Each volume is signed and dated by the architect. A very nice set. Richard Meier won both the Pritzker Prize (1984) and the AIA Gold Medal (1997). He has built the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art, the City Hall and Central Library, and The Hague Getty Center, Los Angeles. Meier builds onto the style of the mid-20th century architects. The early work of Le Corbusier is a particular inspiration, and most of Meier's work has been inspired by Corbusier's idea, more at least, than anyone. Of course, Meier expanded from his predecessor. Some examples are the Villa Savoye and the Swiss Pavilion.

The first volume covers the bindings executed by him over the period 1884-1893 and before the establishment of the Doves Bindery. The second volume is a chronicle of the binding shop he founded in 1893 and the famous bindings it produced over a 30 year period. In its early years the bindery shared premises with William Morris's Kelmscott Press. The consequent collaboration resulted in a series of richly-decorated copies of the Kelmscott Chaucer. Later on the majority of the bindery's work was for the Doves Press, which Cobden-Sanderson founded with Emery Walker in 1900. Dr. Tidcombe's comprehensive work includes a complete catalogue of the books produced with many bindings illustrated in color. Bound by one of England's most famous contemporary binders.

        The Warhol Papers [Censored Version]

      NY: The Artist, 1984. Paperback. Very good. [32]pp in stapled, silver foil covered wraps. Light abrading to the spine edge, slight edgewear, couple of light creases, otherwise very good. Title page stamped "Censored Version" in red; some sections of text redacted in black. Published by Bidlo as an artist's statement on the occasion of his installation/performance of "Andy Warhol's Factory". The text describes the shooting (and death) of Andy Warhol and how Leo Castelli, Robert Scull, and others conspired to have a female artist, Donna Vera, undergo surgery to resemble Warhol and portray him as a living artist.& In 1984, Mike Bidlo who had a studio residency at P.S. 1, Long Island City, NY. presented an event in his studio that was a re-creation of the Warhol Factory with about Three dozen artists, writers, etc., portraying members of the Factory and other Warhol-era individuals (e.g., Gerard Malanga, Leo Castelli, Edie Sedgwick, Bianca Jagger, etc.) with of course, Bidlo playing the role of Warhol.& Bidlo even went so far as to have another group of artists - with actual instruments (i.e., electric guitar, drums, microphones) - playing the roles of the members of the Velvet Underground and performing songs from the Velvet Underground's debut album with David Wojnarowicz as Lou Reed and Keiko Bonk as Nico. & An uncommon piece from early in the artist's career. While Bidlo is acclaimed today for his copies of works by famous artists, this, his second performance was definitely an ambitious effort in replicating a whole time and place in art history. Uncommon, OCLC locates one copy at NYU.
