Hyphen Press: “The first edition of Printed matter was published on the occasion of the award to Karel Martens of the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art: it rapidly sold out and was reprinted. A second edition was published in 2001, with similar success. After that edition had gone out of print, copies became rare commodities. A third edition brings the survey of Martens’s work to 2010, and adds an interview with him. We do not intend to reprint or make further editions of the book.” For further information and an outline history of the successive printings and editions of this publication visit:

Near fine softcover with stiff folded pictorial wrappers with a slight vertical bend to the front cover (minor).
