Wolken (Clouds).

(Düsseldorf: Kaldewey Press, 1981-1982). Thin oblong folio. (26)pp. From an edition of 60, this is one of thirty in German. Each leaf is printed on thin aluminum with illustrations of clouds, the letterpress text printed in blue above the clouds. This innovative and effective conjunction of images and words is presented in a highly sophisticated manner, using wafer-thin aluminum sheets to evoke the lightness and tone of cloudy sky, colored with tints for effect. Bound by Christian Zwang of Hamburg in aluminum boards with a stainless steel hinge. A very fine copy in publisher's gray cloth dropback box. Laid in is a folding sheet of clear parchment titled "The Cloud Performance" published in New York in 1987 which gives an English translation of the work and is signed by Kaldewey and the composer Bun-Ching Lam. Item #31481
