"CHANGES can be considered the earliest of [Something Else] Press' integral 'artist' books,' where the design is more related to the artist's style and method of composition than to book tradition. Francis Starr [...] edited Cunningham's material and with him laid out the pages using chance methods, orienting this process toward an evocation of his dance" (Peter Frank, SOMETHING ELSE PRESS: An Annotated Bibliography, 25). Frank notes more than 3500 copies issued in cloth, but as this is one of the scarcest of the Something Else titles, we suspect actually much lower. A key book both for the press and for Cunningham.

Price: $200.00
