The Book of Now: Dieter Roth and Ed Ruscha

Working in very different styles in the 1960s, Dieter Roth in Europe and Ed Ruscha in Los Angeles revolutionized the way artists work in the medium of books, each creating something immediate and new. The Book of Now: Dieter Roth and Ed Ruscha demonstrates that by subverting the traditional fine art publication of deluxe livres d'artistes, the artists' self-published editions--outwardly modest yet conceptually advanced--broke new ground.
