Publisher Note

ABC Artists’ Books Cooperative invited interested and interesting friends, and even frienemies, to contribute to this superb project. Each participant supplied a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) but with the CoA itself being the artefact. In other words, each document referenced itself. You are advised not to dwell on this conundrum for too long in the interests of your own mental health. Initiator: Micheál O'Connell.

60 loose sheets, A4, 80gsm, non-archival paper and not printed at full-bleed. (Note that ABCOA is produced and shipped in the low-tech spirit or the mail art tradition. The standard envelope may become marked or slightly tattered in transit, and that is seen as part of the project’s charm.)
