Title and imprint from verso of upper wrapper.
"Copy editor and graphic design, Julie Peeters, Antwerp; Roma #210."--Verso of upper wrapper.
"Untitled (September magazine), by artist Paul Elliman, takes the form of a glossy magazine, completely absent of any editorial text, and comprised instead only of cropped and juxtaposed images collected by Elliman over many years. The publication conveys in itself a kind of text spelled out in body shapes, signs and gestures. 'In photographed fragments, the body seems both to correspond to the shapes of letters and to assume writing's inanimate agency. Or maybe another spirit altogether is communicated by the perverse range of images, a secret map of the inner territory of language conducted by the body'"
