Sold-out during the 2017 exhibition, this catalogue was published for the 2017 retrospective also titled The Secret of Permanent Creation. With 125 pages of color photographs and many black and white plates throughout the book. Introduction by Anders Kreuger. With the text The Trip to Cucumberland by Irmeline Lebeer and The Robert Filliou Dictionary by  Robert Filliou and Irmeline Lebeer. With a print run of just 900 copies, the book was later reprinted without the red wrappers if I’m not mistaken (haven’t seen another copy with white wrappers in five years). A copy from the archives of the printer stamped MODEL DIE KEURE niet voor verkoop (MODEL DIE KEURE not for sale) on the title page.

Comes with an unopened set of postcards distributed during the exhibition.

One corner bumped, some wear here and there.
