LEIBER, Steven, bookseller
[From upper cover]: Artform
1996. Many black & white illus. 72, [8] pp. Large 4to (255 x 255 mm.), orig. glossy color pictorial wrappers, staple-bound. [From page 2]: San Francisco: April 1996. A scarce and great Leiber catalogue (no. 24), modeled after the magazine Artforum. It offered entirely printed art ephemera, with descriptions made to look like advertisements and articles. As clearly laid out in the table of contents, this homage offered materials by or related to Beuys, Rauschenberg, Johns, Ray Johnson, Vostell, Burden, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Levine, Robert Indiana, Oldenburg, Dick Higgins and the Something Else Press, Gilbert & George, LeWitt, Pistoletto, Weiner, etc., etc. A number of the items are illustrated with photographs by J. John Priola. This is one of Leiber's most accomplished creations. The full-bleed image on the lower cover, "Lemon picker," is a blurry photograph of Leiber's grandmother, Rose Holtz, in whose basement his premises were located (see Steven Leiber Catalogs, p. 232). It imitates the advertisements placed in Artforum by the gallerist Bruno Bischofberger in the early 1990s. Fine copy. Produced in an edition of 200 copies. ❧ Steven Leiber Catalogs (2019), pp. 97-101.
