A.O.S., A Celebration. London 14th May, 2006 ( AOS A Celebration ).

Thame: I-H-O, 2006. First Edition. Softcover. Large Quarto (12" x 8 1/4"), 96pp. Original wrappers with printed design. A privately-published collection of short essays and photographs, prepared to accompany a celebration of Spare's life that was held on the fiftieth anniversary of his death! Aside from black and white and color reproductions of artwork by Spare, and many superb photographs of him, it contains a series of essays by well-known Spare enthusiasts, in which they write of their passion for the man and his works, its origins, etc. The print-run is unknown, but it would seem likely that there were fewer than a hundred copies, as the book was intended for distribution ONLY to those present at the event. The original printed announcement of the event (a single sheet, folded, to give four 8 x 6 inch pages, with text and several reproductions of works by Spare, and a photographic portrait) is included - loosely inserted. Book and booklet appear unused - thus in Fine condition (no dust jacket issued). Item #64296
