Matthias Herrmann | Magazine

Matthias Herrmann
Little Cockroach Press #2: Magazine
Toronto, Canada: Art Metropole, 1996
16 pp., 20 x 12.7 cm., paper
Edition of 1000, 25 signed by the artist

Released in November of 1996, the issue followed the artist's Sluts magazine and preceded his Hotel books series, all of which feature similar self-portraits. I recall some minor controversy when this arrived in mailboxes, but it obviously didn't prove troubling enough to prevent Herrmann from being invited back to participate in another Little Cockroach Press issue, the only artist to appear twice in the series.
