1 Baumgarten, Lothar Lothar Baumgarten: AMERICA Invention
New York Guggenheim Museum 1993 First Edition Wraps As Issued Near-Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
112-page tabloid-size catalogue for an exhibition held January 28-March 7, 1993, is another of those almost-artist's-books that are part of the art project, as was Baumgarten's painted wall installation in the Museum. He apparently painted the installation to reflect the Wright-ness of the building and designed the publication to reflect the Museum's own magazine. Whatever, the book, as object, is gorgeous, primarily because most of it consists of photographs Baumgarten took between 1968 and 1970 at the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford, and in its storage facility. That makes an examination of Unsettled Objects, the title of this particular publication, possible, including the whole subject of naming, so essential to museumology. Near-Fine in wraps as issued, with the last few pages dog-eared to the bottom corner, not affecting text.

2 Baumgarten, Lothar Lothar Baumgarten: Eklipse
Dusseldorf Richter VErlag 1997 First Edition Stiff Wraps As Issued Near-Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
72-page catalogue published to accompany a traveling exhibition, and designed by Baumgarten. Oversized (10.25" x 13"), the better to appreciate his process--note the little Pantone swatches stuck here and there. Text in German, but who needs text? This copy is no. 451 of 650 copies signed by Baumgarten ("Baumgarten", in pencil). Near-Fine condition: light wear to the edges and faint soiling to white ground of covers.
