Memoirs. Copenhagen, Permild & Rosengreen for the Situationist International, [1959, i.e. 1958].
In-4 [276 x 210] of (34) ff. the first and last blank: paperback, filled sandpaper cover, under rhodoid.
First edition: it was printed in Copenhagen at the end of 1958.
Second work published jointly by Guy Debord (1931-1994) and the Danish painter
Asger Jorn (1914-1973), after Fin de Copenhague (1957).
"Entirely composed of prefabricated elements", the work was realized during the winter 1957- 1958. The elements collected in literary works, newspapers, etc., were glued and then photographed and entrusted to Jorn so that he could draw "colored lines of a rather great complexity that would form the supporting structure" (Correspondence, volume I, pp. 24-25).
Famous "anti-book" whose cover is a piece of sandpaper - a "book of love," Jorn would say, bound in sandpaper, which tears the pocket of entire library shelves, in good memory of the past time that refuses to end, and distresses everyone by its obstinate presence."
Perfectly preserved copy.
