Hardcover. First edition.  40 pages of folding leaves housed within a beige cloth covered box.   Contents protected by a muslin sheet.  At a time when the notion of the book is challenged by innovations in screen and computer-related media, Blood on Paper shows the extraordinary ways in which the book has been treated by leading artists. This ground-breaking book comprises a series of unbound booklets, each one devoted to an artist, presented in a beautifully designed box. This publication acts as the accompanying catalogue to the exhibition Blood on Paper at V&A Museum in London (UK) from 15 April to 29 June 2008, co-curated by the autors. Artists included: Francis Bacon, Balthus, Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Louise Bourgeois, Daniel Buren, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Cai Guo-Qiang, Anthony Caro, Eduardo Chillida, Francesco Clemente, Jean Dubuffet, Sam Francis, Alberto Giacometti, Damien Hirst, Iliazd, Anish Kapoor, Anselm Kiefer, Jeff Koons, Pierre Lecuire, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Long, Henri Matisse, Paul McCarthy, Joan Miró, Robert Motherwell, Isamu Noguchi, Pablo Picasso, Martin Parr, Tom Phillips, Robert Rauschenberg, Paula Rego, Dieter Roth, Edward Ruscha, Antoni Tàpies, Richard Tuttle and Not Vital’.  Condition: Beige cloth shows some dark handling marks, rubbing to titling, and some light wear to edges, otherwise very good.
