Omnibus News 1, 1969

Munich, Omnibus News, 1969. Softcover, 30 x 21 cm, approx. 200 pp. Edited by Thomas Niggl, Christian d'Orville, and Heimrad Prem, in an edition of 1500. Considered to be the first assembling-style publication, it compiles drawings, collages, rubber stampings, visual poetry and documents in a variety of paper types and colours.

Includes contributions from Eric Andersen, Bread and Puppet Theater, Stanley Brouwn, Jochen Gerz, Dick Higgins, Jörg Immendorff, Milan Knizak, Thomas Niggl, Hermann Nitsch, Arnulf Rainer, Klaus Staeck, Timm Ulrichs, Ben Vautier, Wolf Vostell and others. The title suggests a series, but only one issue was published. Includes a loosely inserted pamphlet explaining the concept of Omnibus News, stating that participants of all backgrounds (children, philosophers) were to send in 1500 copies of their contribution which would be glued together as a book. Moderate rubbing and fraying along the spine and extremities, else a fine copy.
