Unpag. (18 pp.) volume of heavy cardboard pages depicting Carmi's graphic illustrated interpretation of an avant-garde musical composition by Cathy Berberian, prefaced by an introduction by Umberto Eco, with glossary of sounds inside green envelope affixed to inside front cover. 4to. Orig. half-cloth over decorative paper-covered boards. Rome/Houston (Arco d'Alibert Edizioni d'Arte/Kiko Galleries) 1966. Includes 33 RPM record of a performance of the composition in Bremen from May 1966. Cathy Berberian composed Stripsody using and inspired by audio material and onomatopoeias taken from comic strips, which were undergoing a resurgence in the 1960s. At the same time, Eugenio Carmi was in the process of illustrating graphic representations of onomatopoeias from comics. Eventually, Berberian and Carmi met and discussed their common interests, and decided to title both of their works "Stripsody" and publish them together.
