OLSON, Richard

Perfect Bind

[Beloit, WI]: [Tongue Press], [1980]. From an edition of 100. 6 x 5-3/8 in., white covers offset printed in red; all sides sealed with red gum. Signed and dated ("1980") by Olson in pencil to rear. Very good, with a spot of soiling to top rear, moderate rubbing.

A conceptual artist's book playing on the language and conventions of contemporary bookbinding. All four edges of the textblock are all sealed with red gum, thus rendering the book unopenable—as it were, "perfect." One of a number of bookworks exploring similar themes, self-published by Olson under his Tongue Press imprint. Of this title, OCLC locates nine holdings.
