Comments

Attractive copy of Munari's important monograph on the use of the photocopier in art, and its democratic potential for usage by individuals without artistic training. Bruno Munari (1907-1998) was an Italian artist, designer, and inventor, and one of the first artists to experiment with the Xerox machine as a medium. Xerografia contains wonderfully-rendered images of his experiments with the Rank Xerox machines capabilities, including examples of his demonstrations at the Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo and the 35th Venice Biennale. Scarce; OCLC shows 12 holdings, of these, only 4 in U.S. institutions (MOMA, Smithsonian, Cleveland Museum of Art, U.Washington).
