Daily Mirror book (1970)

Dieter Rot (Roth)

Daily Mirror - Gesammelte Werke Band 10

Published: Edition Hansjorg Mayer

Date: 1970

Size 23 x 17cm approx. Illustrated paper covers. 462 pages. Limited edition of 1,000 copies. Published in 1970. This is the third variant of Rot's Daily Mirror book made from approximately 150 sheets cut from the British Newspaper. It was first published in Reykjavik in 1961 in a limited edition of 222 copies in a size of only 2 x 2cm. In 1965 Rot enlarged some of these tiny pages to make 'Quadrat Print' a folder of 60 loose sheets in an edition 1,000. This third variant of the project, volume 10 in the artists collected works, belongs to a series of works Rot assembled in the 1960s from the pages of newspapers, comics, printers' make-ready sheets and children's colouring books. Each variant of the book is entirely different and all editions are now extremely scarce. Condition very good. Slight rubbing to edges but binding firm and spine with only a faint crease, suggesting it has been barely read.
