The "premier véritable livre de Dubuffet," and an early example of Art Brut printing. Written, illustrated, and printed on the dining room table by Dubuffet (assisted by his wife), using rudimentary materials and printing techniques. The illustrations were made from the lids of Camembert cheese boxes. Dubuffet stenciled his nonsensical phonetic text onto newsprint using squares of fine silk. One of 165 unnumbered regular copies (plus 15 deluxe). Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.

Price: $2,500.00
