The Complete Mönchengladbach Box Set
Throughout the '60s and '70s, Johannes Cladder, the director of the Stadtisches Museum in Mönchengladbach, Germany, regularly published boxed artists' books and multiples in lieu of official exhibition catalogs. The Mönchengladbach Box Set includes every rare artists' book produced during this period, many containing original art works, by Becher, Beuys, Broodthaers, Darboven, Johns, Panamarenko, Richter, and Weiner, among others. The Becher edition includes twelve original, vintage prints.
'The Zervos' Picasso Catalogue Raisonné.
Pablo Picasso par Christian Zervos, known by many simply as the Zervos, remains the most trusted reference to the works of Picasso.
The Zervos is an extensive catalogue of Picasso's paintings and drawings, presenting over 16,000 images in 33 volumes. Prepared by Cahiers d'art founder Christian Zervos in direct collaboration with Picasso, the Zervos was published between 1932 and 1978.
