Köln: Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 1992, 1995, 2000. First Editions. Quartos. The three volumes of Kippenberger's famous hotel drawings, reproduced at scale. Hotel-Hotel (1992) is number 700 of 950 press-numbered copies; Hotel-Hotel-Hotel (1995) is limited to 500 copies with this copy unnumbered; No Drawing No Cry (2000) is copy 617 of 750 press-numbered copies. Hotel-Hotel has an infinitesimal stain to the top edge, else just about fine with faint edgewear in pale green wrappers with French flaps; Hotel-Hotel-Hotel is also very close to fine with minimal edgewear in orange wrappers with French flaps, and No Drawing No Cry is lightly faded at the spine, else near fine in olive wrappers with French flaps. A handsome set of Kippenberger's most enduring contribution to artist books.
