I'm desperately searching for books about/from French painter Clovis Trouille. Are there any?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

If you use Abe Books and use Clovis Trouille as a key word you get some magazines and a book? article... same with Amazon.

Ebay gave 4 but 2 are over £100.00 !

Thank you both! Will try to find something, but probably won't be very successful.
Somebody should make new editions or a completely new book. I think it's well deserved.

This question didn't seem to warrant a new topic, so I will ask here:

VOD159: CLOCK DVA HOROLOGY IV 1976-1981 320 page Book with 2x7inch.
Comprehensive Anthology of early Clock DVA 1976-1981.

What exactly is this? Is the book a written history of the period? A visual collection of visual art, pamphlets, show flyers, or... ? Both? I have no idea and cannot find anywhere on the Vinyl On Demand Facebook posts nor elsewhere on the internet a further explanation than the short, ambiguous blurb above. Has anyone laid hands on this book? Thanks for any insight!

Hermann Nitsch, The Gesamtkunstwerk of the Orgien Mysterien Theater, published in 2015 by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König. Insanely huge art book of 968 pages, if you're into Hermann Nitsch this is the document. It's an incredible tome covering all of his work from the actions to the paintings and drawings, theater and opera staging, even his musical scores. There are essays by Nitsch and others throughout and a whole section devoted to some of Nitsch's key texts on the philosophy of his work. There is a German version and an English version, it looks like the English version might be out of print. I got mine off AbeBooks for a reasonable price. Definitely worth it if you're really into this.

"In addition to functioning as a substantial documentation of his work and in a sense preserving and disseminating it, it was important to me that this book should reflect the artist’s own style of editorial and graphic work. The artist Hermann Nitsch should help shape and design his reference work, so that it captures his Gesamtkunstwerk for posterity in a way that is authentic, genuine, and entirely in the artist’s spirit. The focus of this extraordinary book project was not just a monograph on Hermann Nitsch but a monograph on and by Hermann Nitsch. A magnum opus on his magnum opus." -Michael Karrer, Editor

German Edition ISBN 978-3-86335-702-3

Save for making a new thread I suppose this might be the best spot for this:

Anyone have intel on a photo book, I'm assuming from 70s/80s, which collects movie stills of actors in the roles of Nazis (or at least in uniform - I only remember a photo of Clint Eastwood from Where Eagles Dare)? I saw a used copy on Amazon about 12 years ago but it was quite expensive. I kept it in my wish list but it was eventually removed and I don't recall the name of it. It's a hard thing to try and google as well.

Wow yes, that's it, thanks!

Damn, what a price...

Be interesting to see that as an exhibit as well.

EDIT: And here is the Eastwood image I remember https://www.betterworldbooks.com/product/detail/The-Nazis-9783905509229

Does anybody know more about this movement and the related Inside artzines? Is it worth getting them?
