Format: 24 x 19
The object-book „The barrel organ (L’Orgue de Barbarie)” was printed in 299 copies 39 of which are unique. The cover was made in a form of envelope from hand-made paper. The book has an original form of a concertina, with both ends glued together, having no beginning nor end. The concept of the book was based on a rondo composition of the below given slightly perverse and macabre and philosophic poem ending with the following clause “… and everything must have been started right from the beginning”.
