A deluxe edition in an edition of 1000 copies, consisting of a handmade clay multiple by James Lee Byars, titled “The Sphere of Generosity,” and a blue steel covered book by Eric Orr and Byars. Book contains “The Matter of O”, a rubber-stamped stain of Orr’s blood; “Skull Page”, made of handmade paper using Kozo fibers and a powdered mummy skull with red screenprinting. Pages 25/26 were hand-torn by the artist. The book,a monograph/catalogue raisonné by Orr with interventions by Byars, and multiple are housed in a large polystyrene box and slipcased in a screenprinted cardboard box. An overwhelmingly well produced project that sets a high standard for both artists’ publications and artist designed monographs.

In perfect condition, like 95% procent of the aquarian books: they all belong to the personal collection of Hilde Peleman, founder of Copyright Bookshop.
