Commentary

Designed by Barbara Iwanicka and Alex Farrar, Dog Ears is a studio reader made from a compilation of pages that the artist had thumbed over for future reference. It is the fourth book made as part of his attempt to complete The Kippenberger Challenge and equal Martin Kippenberger’s annual average printed output of 7.45 books.
