Commentary

To complete The Kippenberger Challenge and equal Martin Kippenberger’s annual average printed output of 7.45 books, Farrar released five artist’s proofs of Catalogue Available (2011). Sealed in a plastic case, they now serve as a custodian edition of the original site-specific book which is otherwise unique and on permanent display in the library of Leeds College of Art.

aaaeflrrrx.eu was built with the ingenuity and patience of DisplayHooray.
The typeface used throughout is Maria Pro, created by Phil Baber, whose 2010 design for the Index book reappears here in the work pages.
