comment: the first white book published in 1962 had another format (5 copies). In 1980 another (third) edition came out in Bern (artists press, [1980]), indicated as an edition of 5000 but only 100 were made. It is a 'revised edition', as there is no text anymore in the book or at the outside. the text is here only on abanderole [i.e. wrapper], so if you take away the banderole, the book is empty, no title, no (empty) introduction, anonym." In 2012 and 2014 more white books were published.
