KLEIN, Yves. Dimanche: Le Journal d'un Seul Jour. 4 page 'newspaper', illustrated throughout. 558 x 762 mm. when flat, housed in a custom clamshell box. [Paris, France]: [Yves Klein], November 27, 1960.
Yves Klein published this journal upon the occasion of the Festival d'Art d'Avant-Garde in Paris where it was displayed on newsstands for one day. Harry Shunk's famous photomontage of Klein's Leap into the Void is reproduced on the front page above the fold, with the headline Un homme dans l'espace! Le peintre de l'espace se jette dans le vide (A Man in Space! The Painter of Space throws himself into the void). Inside, Klein expounds on his other preoccupations: colour theory, immateriality, judo, space and emptiness. A fine copy of this fragile conceptual art feuilleton.
