Gumigas Zimogs
(1996)
The use of the rubber stamp by artists throughout the world is recorded here by Van Horn. She tranlates ‘rubber stamp’ into the language of the 29 countries represented in the book and rubber stamps the tranlated word on the page with the name of that country printed beneath. i.e., AUSTRALIA ‘Rubber Stamp’, DENMARK ‘Gummistempel’. For Van Horn it is an essential phrase book for obtaining rubber stamps in various parts of the world, where every main city has a district and a particular shop.64 pp, 14.8 x 11.5 cm. Edition 154/200. Coracle. Photographer Carl Warner.
