EX LIBRIS: Herbert Pfostl: The Original List

DATE 8/31/2013

In 2009, Herbert Pfostl--legendary curator and book buyer for the New Museum Store--put together a list of his then-top ten most indispensible books--many of which turned out to be bilingual or German first editions by somewhat obscure international publishers of critical, philosophically adventurous material. No surprise there; we were challenged. A few years later, in 2012, he put together a somewhat more accessible list of philosophically similar books distributed by ARTBOOK | D.A.P. Somewhere along the way, the first list inexplicably disappeared from our site. We are proud to bring it back again, along with a newly edited list of additional suggested readings at bottom.

1. Hans Prinzhorn – Bildnerei der Geisteskranken
Beautifuly reprinted by Springer Wien/NewYork as a sober black hardcover design after the original first edition from 1922.

2. The Treasure Chests of Mnemosyne
Selected texts on memory theory from Plato to Derrida. Edited by Uwe Fleckner with a picture essay by Sarkis. Dresden: Verlag der Kunst, 1998

3. Witkacy: Metaphysical Portraits

6. Antonin Artaud: Works on Paper

7. Henry Darger: In the Realm of the Unreal
By John MacGregor, Delano Greenidge Editions, 2002.

8. Miroslav Tichy: Dedicated to The Women of Kyjov
Roman Buxbaum, Walther Konig, Koln, 2008.

9. The Dark Side of Nature: Science, Society, and the Fantastic in the Work of Odilon Redon
