Following Alighiero e Boetti’s 1992 artist’s book 111 (in which xeroxed A4 news clips and personal ephemera were bound within the artist’s signature red cover cloth with gold embossing) Jonathan Monk has amassed fifty and a half flyers (found or handed to the artist directly in the streets of Rome) before photocopying, binding and slipping in one loose A6 flyer, for this new onestar press project.
Aptly titled 55,5, Monk’s book is half the size of Boetti’s original work and includes an inspired dedication to the late-artist in the form of a left-hand written colophon for this edition.
