Slant Step Book: The Mysterious Object and the Artworks It Inspired
(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. Contributors include Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer, Dan Nadel, Jacob Stewart-Halevy, Terry Berlier, Gordon Hall, Corin Hewitt, Aay Preston-Myint, Jessi Reaves, Mungo Thomson and Angela Willetts.
