Longs poemes courts a terminer chez soi.Bruxelles Hamburg: Editions Lebeer Hossmann, 1984 Stock Code: 143553
First edition, one of 500 sets printed and now scarce, with only two recorded at auction. Filliou's text on the folder states that the postcards were issued in memory of Danish artist Arthur "Addi" Kopke (1928-1977), at whose gallery these poems were originally exhibited during his 1961 residence in Copenhagen with his wife Marianne.
These postcard poems were intentionally incomplete, to be completed at home by the recipients: "It's much less important to express myself than to induce others to express themselves. So I would start a poem in such a way that they could finish it themselves."
16 postcard poems printed in various colours, housed in a grey card folder printed in blue.
Postcards fine and fresh, the folder with only light rubbing to corners, generally excellent.
