Dieter Roth

Dieter Roth, born today in 1930, produced more significant artists' books than perhaps any other artist (Ed Ruscha's titles are arguably more influential, but Ruscha was not as prolific). He is one of a very small number of artists to have a catalogue raisonné published for both his bookworks and his multiples. Roth died of a heart attack in June of 1998 in his studio in Basel, Switzerland.
