Für Dich Verlag Nr. 1
A book of all the dedications out of the personal library of the author, a documentation of where it happens by Jan Matthé/Für Dich Verlag, photocopied at home in St. Lauri/Antwerp on a dirty Minolta EP1050.
104 Pages, b&w, 14,5 x 20,6 cm, photocopied, perfect binding, first edition of 40, second edition of 45, 2011.
Katalog 1 is also part of the Piracy Project library and is described by Printed Matter as "An artists' book that consists of all of the dedications out of the personal library of the author, Jan Matthé. Through this selective documentation, the work becomes a lyrical reflection on the gesture of dedication itself – humbly crafted and bound in a striking orange cover."
Katalog 1 was part of the summer exhibition HELP/LESS at Printed Matter in NY, curated by Chris Habib. The exhibition ran July 14th til September 29th 2012. See a list of all the books in the expo here.
