large 4-color fldg. codex style with stencils drawn and hand-cut by author reduced to size and intervened on a photocopier, printed on Mohawk Poseidon Basis 100 text, harbound in cloth, hand-sprayed title. Catalogue in pocket on verso of frt. cover. 17"x18" in.
SIGNED, NUMBERED EDITION of 40. Scarce special edition by the "daddy" of contemporary artists' books in Mexico. By means of manipulating stencils that were hand-cut for over a period of 20 years, Ehrenberg creates a codex of the glyphs of contemporary life and culture. The result is a highly visual pre-Columbian, hard-boiled detective story.
