HOMPSON, Davi Det

I asked a usually talkative friend why she was so quiet. She finished her punch before admitting, “I’m afraid you’ll put everything I say into your next exhibition.”

[Richmond, VA]: Davi Det Hompson, [circa 1976-77].  8vo. Saddle-stapled in printed self-wraps. [16]pp., inclusive of wraps. Very good condition, some brown dampstains along top edge, primarily at the spine corner.

A self-published artist's book consisting of fifteen short sardonic andecdotes, one per page, all dealing with various characters' reactions to "my writings," "my work," etc., as in: 'Placing his hand flat against the wall a student called to me and said, "This is it. This is what your pieces are doing."' Although undated, Clive Phillipot ascribes this phase of Hompson's book production specifically to the years 1976-77 ("Some Contemporary Artists and Their Books," in Artists' Books: A Critical Anthology and Sourcebook," ed. Joan Lyons, 120).
