about the book

‘Marcel Duchamp’ became the go-to book on the artist for many decades following its publication in late 1959, when exclusive grand-deluxe and deluxe editions in French, along with trade editions in French and English, were simultaneously released. While Trianon Press’s French trade edition was reprinted numerous times, the Grove Press English edition languished out of print for the better part of two generations—until now, with Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ fully authorized facsimile re-edition.

Making the book

This short documentary film chronicles the painstaking, letter-by-letter process that went into Hauser & Wirth Publisher’s project of republishing the monograph in an edition faithful to both the spirit and the physical object of the original, the culmination of years of efforts by the artist Jean-Jaques Lebel, Robert Lebel’s son, to bring the influential and increasingly rare English edition back into the world.

“He first declared a bicycle wheel to be a work of art in 1913, but it took nearly half a century — with the 1959 publication of Robert Lebel’s catalogue raisonné of his early painting, his ready-mades and his cryptic notes — for the New York art world to crown the discreet and debonair Duchamp as King Marcel. Long out of print, it’s now been re-editioned and bundled with a supplement that maps the influence of Lebel’s book over the decades, all housed in a handsome slipcase.”

– Jason Farago, New York Times
