[Paris] Aux Nourritures Terrestres, 1950. Folio (37.5 x 29.0 cm). Title page in five colours, index page, signed by the three authors still living at the time; ten full-colour lithographs. Contemporary intarsia calf binding by Swiss bookbinder Gérard Charrière; boards additionally painted and with iridescent synthetic silk; embossed title on the spine.

A beautifully produced portfolio, containing artwork by the German-born French Dadaist artist Hans "Jean" Arp (1886-1966), the Ukrainian-French artist Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979), the Italian artist Alberto Magnelli (1888-1971), and the Swiss-born French artist and spouse of Jean Arp, Sophie Taeuber-Arp (1889-1943). These are experimental joint efforts, by different "teams", as follows: five by Jean, Sophie and Alberto; one by Jean and Sophie; one by Jean and Sonia; one by Jean and Alberto; one by Jean, Sonia and Alberto; and one by Sonia and Alberto. This is one of 150 copies (this one being #143), signed by all the artists, except for Sophie Taeuber-Arp (stamped autograph) because she died, by accident, before publication. The fine binding by the French-Swiss book artist and painter Gérard Charrière (b. 1935). Work by Charrière is collectible in itself. An excellent, clean, unique copy.
