Paris: Galerie Denise René, juin 1967. Not many fine copies can have survived of this stunning catalogue on the Venezuelan op and kinetic artist Jesús Rafael Soto (1923-2005). The white cover bears his name in dark-blue outline capitals split crosswise in half, with the lower part above the upper one. That center portion of the cover is sliced from near the spine to the front edge into 24 individual strips 4 mm wide (about 1/8-inch) and 217 mm long. The cover itself is a brilliant example of his work, but also vulnerable to damage. Even careful handling can distort, wrinkle, tear, or detach these fragile strips. Profusely illustrated (including two color plates and two pages in yellow).  pp. White front cover and spine, and dark-blue rear cover. 22.9 cm square. Very fine.
