246 Little Clouds

Dieter Rot [Dieter Roth], Emmett Williams

246 Little Clouds


An all-time favorite artists' book featuring photo-reproductions of an unique book by Rot [aka Dieter Roth] that was over exposed in preparation by Something Else Press per, mistakenly, Rot's instructions. The book would later be re-realized as part of Roth's self-published collected works, but this version has immediate feel that is lacking from the later version. Book also includes 13 page introductory text by Williams.
