STAMPART issue. Edition of 300 copies. A dossier of international stamp works. The most elaborate and rarest of all Vile issues as most copies were distributed back to artist contributors. VILE magazine was founded by artist Anna Banana in response to the magazine FILE’ s growing disdain for mail - art. She worked togetherwith Bill Gaglione and the Bay Area Dadaists. This volume is an assembling of rubber stamp art. One hundred and eighty - five international contributors each sent approximately three hundred rubberstamped pages, which were then collated to create the final assemblings. The volume was produced in an edition of 300, but not many remained because the copies were returned to the condtribuors; a very good copy as offered here is very rare. . [Ref.
