GIF 2

GIF 2 was published by The Artists' Press in collaboration with FIG Gallery in 1994. Artists were asked to submit an edition of 101 works that would be able to fit inside the given format. When it was launched the book sold for R 425, most of which went towards covering the bronze casting costs for the cover.

At the bottom of this page, you will find links to all of the artists' books that have been produced at The Artists' Press.

The bronze hooves were made by sculptor Guy Du Toit.
