Bernadette Mayer


North Atlantic Books, Plainfield, VT, 1975. First Edition. Softcover with Illustrated wraps. 195pp., 6 x 9 inches

Very Good. Faint shelf wear with minor rubbing. A tightly bound, square, sharp copy of this scarce collection.

Long out of print text component from Bernadette Mayer’s “emotional science project” Memory. Initiated in 1971 and exhibited the following year by Holly Solomon at 98 Greene Street, the project consists of 1,116 photographs displayed in a grid, six hours of audio narration and nearly 200 pages of text. The project would not be viewed in full again until 2016. A singular and remarkable work.
