Dieter Roth

The Smell of Ink and Soil
The Story of [Edition] Hansjörg Mayer

This is a long-awaited account of the work of the great publisher and designer Hansjörg Mayer in the fields of concrete poetry, typography, artist’s publications and ethnographic books over six decades. It includes the first bibliography of his works.

Identified as a print prodigy by Max Bense in the late 1950s, Mayers unique expertise and virtuosity with print technologies of the time allowed for the casting of works in various experimental formats which stretched, fragmented and expanded the concept of the poem.

He combined an interest in chance and randomness with a mathematically precise attention to use of graphic space, which makes his works now seem anticipatory of networked systems whilst holding a more modernist purity of form. His works made seminal explorations into the possibilities of concrete and computational convergence.

Mayer had a retrospective exhibition at Haags Gemeentemuseum in 1968 at the young age of 25. After this he concentrated on making experimental publications with artists.

Through his edition hansjörg mayer he issued publications of Dieter Roth, Richard Hamilton, Tom Phillips, André Thomkins and Emmett Williams.

From the late 1970s he also began to research, collect and publish an extraordinary series of books about vanishing cultures.

Dieter Roth
Unique Pieces



Dieter Roth was the quintessential artist’s artist, highly revered by his peers but nonetheless something of a dark horse.
With the collaboration of his friend Philipp Buse, Roth created and curated his own private museum, which at the time of his death in 1998 housed a remarkable 550 original works, 1,400 prints, around 250 artist’s books and all the multiples and specially designed editions he ever created. This book is a visually stunning survey of Dieter Roth’s ‘Unique Pieces’, referred to by him as ‘Originale’, as well as an unparalleled insight into his life and work. It charts the progression of Roth’s ‘Unique Pieces’ from 1950 to 1998 and provides a complete catalogue of them all, accompanied by information supplied mainly by the artist. Dirk Dobke, Curator at the Dieter Roth Foundation, explores the artist’s 25-year friendship and collaboration with Philipp Buse, as well as the history and development of the Museums.

Unique Pieces, the first in a three-volume series, is accompanied by a spectacular CD-ROM that features a virtual tour of the Schimmelmuseum, enabling the reader to experience in full the magic of the Chocolate Gnomes, the Spice Objects and much more.
