Archive Annotations: Billy Childish i am their damaged megaphone catalogue from Art Basel 2010

Archive Annotations are a series of sporadic and incomplete anecdotes regarding past L-13 releases, oddities and rejects which are dug up from the vaults to be paraded about and subsequently DISPOSED OF via the archive section of the site shop.
Usually these are unique items, limited numbers from a long sold-out edition or unreleased experiments.
Once they are sold and their fate is sealed in a private collection these annotations will remain as reference to their existence.

i am their damaged megaphone

This was the catalogue we made for neugerriemschneider’s 2010 presentation of Billy’s work at Art Basel. It was done at very very short notice and we had to use whatever cloth the printer had in stock, hence the different colours. We also decided to have two different pictorial inlays on the front board and two different endpapers.

The production quality was a bit iffy, but they were freebies. 1,000 copies were printed and most of these were given away during the art fair. Now very scarce

Here we have one of each colour made, signed with Billy’s gallows symbol on the half title page.

26.5 x 21.5 cm
