0 to 9 Books, 1968. Item #1138
Side-stapled in wrappers, 42 leaves.
A mimeograph publication with a graph paper front wrapper, Four Book consists of numerous typographic and poetic experimentations by Acconci, who references the fourfold nature of the work by including his name as author four separate times on the title page. The work includes copies of phone book pages accompanied by lists of words, mediations on the many meanings of “the top” as inspired by its physical place on a page, sequences of phrases in drawn-on boxes, and indications of which pages (or parts of pages) do not comprise any of the Four Books.
Front cover gently used with minor rumple to upper right corner. Ink price (1-) to title page. Rear cover shows minor shelf wear. Very good to near fine.
