Dick Higgins

Today marks the fifteenth anniversary of the death of composer, poet, publisher and Fluxus artist Dick Higgins. He died of a heart attack at age sixty, while attending an event in Quebec, and is survived by his wife, artist Alison Knowles. Their daughter Hannah Higgins is the author of Fluxus Experience.

Higgins' contribution to artists' books and multiples is immeasurable, but he wrote and edited forty seven books and founded three publishing companies: Unpublished Editions, Printed Editions and the hugely important Something Else Press.
