Henri Laurens: papiers collés, with original invitation stapled onto rear cover

Paris: Berggruen, 1955. Lithographic cover by Mourlot. 17 pp. of plates (including 5 Jacomet color pochoirs; some double-spread). [24] pp. Decorated paper covers. 22 x 11.5 cm. Text by Pierre Reverdy. Publication no. 11 in series. The unusual invitation to the opening on 11 March 1955 is a piece of corrugated cardboard 14.5 x 11.5 cm. The printed text, "Vous êtes prié d'honorer de votre présence…," etc., is deeply impressed into the soft material. The title "Laurens" is printed in an extra-bold Bodoni type on thin, off-white paper torn into an irregular shape and pasted on the cardboard like a collage. The piece is attached to the rear cover with two staples. The spine and the bottom of the cover near it are bent, and the backstrip has been torn and repaired 1.5 cm at the front joint. Many other unlisted Berggruen titles available. Fine. **Free domestic shipping with direct order. Item #19521
