Derek Sullivan | Books Wanted

Derek Sullivan 
Books Wanted 
Toronto, Canada: Paul+Wendy Projects, 2022
8 1/2 x 11"
Edition of 60 signed and numbered copies [+10 APs]

An update of one of my favorite Derek Sullivan works, in which the artist seeks to find obscure artists' books using the kind of fly post with tear-away phone numbers that you would advertise a missing dog or a refrigerator for sale. The type of ad that might be pinned to a laundry room or post office cork board, or taped to a lamppost. 

The original dates back to 2004. This new iteration is a risograph thermography print, with pinholes in the top corners. 

It is available from the publishers for $50 CDN, here.
