Muttenz, Switzerland, 1987. One of 200 copies. With 101 paper samples in printed folders. Text: 128 pp. 1 vols. Folio. Text volume bound in Nepalese paper over boards, upper board titled in black. Autograph letter, signed, presenting the work loosely inserted. As new in publisher's folding box. One of 200 copies. With 101 paper samples in printed folders. Text: 128 pp. 1 vols. Folio. A spectacular assembly of unusual papers from an international roster of papermakers, fully described with noes on production processes. As Siegenthaler wrote, "Even as the Strange Papers collection makes its appearance, it has already become clear that some of the papers included in it can never again be produced, either becuase the raw material no longer exists or the papermaker no longer makes that particular paper and is not revealing his secret."This copy includes an autograph letter, signed, (in German), dated Bangkok 6 June 1995, presenting this copy, "as author and portrayed in this leaf as watermark …", signed, "Mit freundlichen Grüssen, Fred Siegenthaler". The watermark is a highly detailed self portrait of Siegenthaler, corresponding to Mein Schattenwasserzeichen, 1978.A sensory delight and an enduring legacy of master papermaker and artist Fred Siegenthaler.
