Well I've always been a fan of Klein and the show this book is
based on had arrived at the Walker in Minneapolis.
I thought that it would be a good idea to go to the main library
to refresh my knowledge on Klein before going to the exhibit.
Well what did I find but this book on the shelf!
It's a cool format. The entire outside of this edition has been
trimmed so the covers and pages are flush and the
whole outside has been pigmented/dyed deep blue(IKB I presume).
I'm not going into detail reviewing the
book(I'm a collector not an art book critic.)
except to say that the content is very extensive.
The editing, photos of Klein, the images of his work, and
text are well done.
My only caveat is that the binding and the cover
cosmetics are delicate because of the format.
So, if you get a copy to collect treat the outside
of the book with care, especially the cover edges.
Interesting format, comprehensive content,
nice price. Highly recommended.
