joaquin torres garcia
In the '30s, Joaquin TORRES GARCIA created about 25 artist books, all unique copies. They were handwritten, roughly sewn with a piece of rope.
For the centenary of his birthday (1874-1974), the Torres Garcia Foundation and the Culture and Education Department of Uruguay published seven of these books, in fac-simile reprints.
These facsimile reprints are in fact the 1st edition of the books.
Here are two of them, still rudimentally bound with a piece of rope, at the same format.

Unpaginated. 36 pages. Text in French as in the original written in Losones (Swizterland). Drawings. Hard cover. Sewn. 21.5x19 cm. Edition of 1,260 copies of which 60 numbered I to LX. This copy is one of the unnumbered ones. Fondation Torres-García, Montevideo, Uruguay, 1974. 1st edition.
Joaquin TORRES GARCIA: Père Soleil. 1974 (1931).
Unpaginated. 72 pages. Text in French as in the original written in Paris (France), July 29, 1931. Drawings. Hard cover. Sewn. 17x12.5 cm. Edition of 1,260 copies of which 60 numbered I to LX. This copy is one of the unnumbered ones. Fondation Torres-García, Montevideo, Uruguay, 1974. 1st edition.
