Al Vostro Servizio.

[Hamburg: Self-published], 1977. First Edition. Octavo. One of only 100 copies of Martin Kippenberger's first artist's book; a collaborative project with Achim Duchow and Jochen Krüger, published on the occasion of a group exhibition at Hamburg's Funcius Petersen (Oct. 28, 1977). Kippenberger's contribution—credited to Kippy Kippensberger (pp. 74-120)—includes dozens of xerographic reproductions of his early cycle of black-and-white Florence paintings (Uno di voi, un tedesco in Firenze), accompanied by a transcript of his conversation with the German actor Balduin Baas from just a few days before the exhibition's opening. Forming the mid-section, Jochen Krüger's chiaroscuro street photography imbues this volume with the feel of a Provoke publication. (Koch 1). Very faint fading to spine, else a remarkably fine copy in bold illustrated wrappers. Only two OCLC records located, both of them in Switzerland; MoMA also records a copy. A Kippenberger rarity.
