One of Bertini's earliest artist books. "Gianni Bertini was an Italian painter and graphic artist, whose experimental work with technologies of media, material transfer, and photo-mechanical screen printing resulted in a distinctive style, contemporary with Warhol and reminiscent of Pop Art, but with a more explicitly critical orientation vis-à-vis postwar consumer culture. Bertini often collaborated with experimental poets and was particularly close to Henri Chopin. He also worked with Sarenco in the early years of Lotta Poetica".
