To sell this material, Leiber produced a series of 52 iconic catalogues between 1992 and 2010. Across 252 pages, this book documents the full set of 52 dealer catalogues produced by Steven Leiber between 1992 and 2010.Far from your ordinary dealer catalog, Leiber’s cataloguess paid homage to the kind of historic printed matter that he bought and sold, mimicking iconic publications like Wallace Berman’s Semina journal and the exhibition catalog for Documenta V (1972). Leiber’s reputation spread via these unique volumes, which included works by John Baldessari, Lynda Benglis, Ray Johnson, Lucy Lippard, Allan Kaprow, Yayoi Kusama, Claes Oldenburg, Ed Ruscha, Lawrence Weiner and many more.
