Dieter Roth was the quintessential artist's artist, highly revered by his peers, but nonetheless something of a dark horse. With the collaboration of Philipp Buse, Roth created and curated his own private museum, which, at the time of his death in 1998 housed a remarkable 550 original works, 1400 prints, around 250 artist's books and all the multiples and specially designed editions he had ever created.

This book - the first in a three-volume series - is a visually stunning survey of Roth's 'Unique Pieces' as well as an unparalled insight into his life and work.

Dirk Dobke, Curator at the Dieter Roth Foundation, explores the artist's 25-year friendsip with Philipp Buse, as well as the history and development of the museum.

Unique Pieces is accompanied by a spectacular CD-ROM that enables the reader to experience in full the magic of the Chocolate Gnomes, the Spice Objects and much more. . .
