Printed wrpps., loose as issued, housed in two gold-stamped black binders in a matching black slipcase. Olot, Spain (Aubert Impressor) 1981. "Dau al Set" was a group of avant-garde artists, philosophers, and poets active in Barcelona in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Inspired by Dada, Surrealism, and the work of Catalan artist Joan Miró, their goals were to promote Catalan art that challenged academic and institutional norms. Founding members included Arnau Puig, Antoni Tàpies, Modest Cuixort, Joan Ponç, and Joan Brossa. The journal expresses incredible creativity and a group that was pushing the boundaries of standard forms of expression, with each issue containing vibrant artwork, graphic typography, or surprising textural elements. As of August 2015, WorldCat shows scattered holdings in North American institutions, many of them incomplete runs. (Inventory #: 48329)
