John Cage | Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse)

John Cage
Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse)
Los Angeles, USA: Siglio Press, 2015
176 pp., 6 x 8.5", hardcover
Edition size unknown

A full review of this essential title is forthcoming, but get your copy today when it launches at Printed Matter's Art Book Fair tonight at MoMA P.S.1. The book won't be in stores until October 27th.

The title collects, for the first time anywhere, all eight parts of Cage's Diary, which was written and published over sixteen years. For example, Part 2 was published as part of William Copley's SMS series, and Part 3 as a Great Bear Pamphlet, published by The Something Else Press (both below).

Co-editors Joe Biel and Richard Kraft stay true to the spirit of Cage's layouts, which were all determined by chance operation.  It's lovingly produced, with coloured texts and a letterpressed cover.

Siglio are in Room C-#04, and will also be carrying their recent titles by Sophie Calle and Ray Johnson (including the facsimile of his own Something Else Press title, The Paper Snake).
