Known internationally as one of Mexico’s most important conceptual artists, Ulises Carrión played a decisive role in defining and conceptualising the genre of the artists' book through his manifesto, which he wrote soon after the 1972 publication of SONNET(S) and his move from Mexico City to Amsterdam. This republication is supplemented by new essays on Carrión's bookworks by contemporary artists, writers, and scholars from Mexico, Europe and the US. One of Carrión's earliest "bookworks," SONNET(S) represents a landmark shift in the artist's output from poetry to artists’ books. Here, Carrión takes a single poem by Dante Gabriel Rossetti through 50 typographic and procedural permutations.
