Published on the occasion of Eric Orr’s exhibition at Anders Tornberg Gallery in Lund, Sweden in 1990. The collaborative volume is bound in an anodized steel cover, housed in a molded Styrofoam box and packaged within a screenprinted cardboard sleeve. It contains a unique multiple by James Lee Byars; a handmade sphere of fired clay, titled ‘The Sphere of Generosity’ .
The inlay is primarily serving as a catalogue raisonné of Orr’s work, with jointly authored texts by Orr and Byars and additional essays by critic McEvilley. On page 15, Orr has stamped a ring of his own blood, in the shape of a coffee stain. Further into the book, the ’Skull Page’ is an inserted page of handmade paper by Yoshio Ikezaki, using kozo fibres impregnated with a powdered mummy’s skull. Pages 25-26 are torn, as designed by the artists.
