THE OCTOBER COLOURING-IN BOOK: DAVID BATCHELOR. {Title from spine.} Ridinghouse, London, 2015. Published in association with common-editions, London. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 112 pp. with 42 col. ills. 26 x 21 cm. ISBN 9781909932074 In English.
Publisher's description: Since its launch in 1976, the most influential journal of art history and criticism, October, has not had one image reproduced in color. Well-known contemporary Scottish artist and writer David Batchelor playfully rectifies this situation in the series of delightful, exuberant and colorful drawings (2012-13) that transform every page of the magazine's first issue (Summer 1976). Disrupting October's orderly monochromatic universe and textual clarity, Batchelor engages a carnival-like play of form and color on each page in abstract compositions of circles, triangles and rectangles of brilliant transparent color and opaque black planes. Batchelor, who works with found objects and images in drawing, photography and installation, again applies the colors and dynamism of the modern city to this artist project. Reprinted here for the first time in actual size, this book is a must-have for every art book collector.
