Dieter Roth's first book, Kinderbuch [Children's Book], which he designed himself, was initially produced as a unique work, made in 1954 for the German dramatist and concrete poet Claus Bremer's son. Bremer returned the book to the artist and suggested that Roth try to have it published. Cover detached, rear cover mostly detached, some staining and toning, overall a good copy of this outstanding rarity. From the Library of Walter Bareiss with his bookplate by George Baslitz (signed).
This is one of 75 unsigned copies. There were also 25 signed copies with cut-outs. Not listed on OCLC.
