The distributor has assigned this title ISBN 978-09841309-5-5; however, the ISBN that appears in our record is the only one imprinted. Publisher's description: Essaying Essays provides a radical view into the revolutionary aesthetic of the late 1960s and early 1970s. This edition runs the gamut from the avant-garde to concrete writing to the Fluxus movement. Complied by artist and writer Richard Kostelanetz, long known for his contributions to this era, this pivotal reprint is reformatted from the original 1975 newsprint version. This voluminous volume provides an in-depth door into these now iconic movements and artists. Featured is a wide array of well-known contributors, over 100, including Acconci, Auden, Fuller, Cage, Duchamp, Kostelanetz, Higgins, Lippard, Reinhardt, Serra, Smithson, Brecht, Graham, Oldenberg, Nauman and many more. Given that the content in this publication cannot be found elsewhere, the reprinting of this collection will prove to be an important scholarly resource for years to come.
