In 1975 Mexican artist Ulises Carrión established in Amsterdam one of the first centres dedicated to the exhibition and distribution of artists' books: Other Books and So.
'The most beautiful and perfect book in the world is a book with only blank pages.'
Ulises Carrión, in: The New Art of Making Books (1975)
'One copy of the book is not the book. The book is the whole edition.'
Ulises Carrión, in: Bookworks Revisited (1979)
Like in for example Simon Starling's project with dummy books: Les Maquettes en Blanc (1995-2009) (2009).
