Slant Step Book: The Mysterious Object and the Artworks It Inspired

In stock (1000 items available)
For nearly five decades a peculiar wooden object called the “Slant Step” was exchanged between artists from coast to coast, developing a cult like following and inspiring poetry, art and unlikely collaborations. On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, Phil Weidman’s influential Slant Step Book is once again available. This long-overdue republication features a facsimile of the 1969 artist’s book and a companion catalogue with new essays and visual responses by contemporary writers and artists.
