comment: in view of the boom in graphics on the art market in the early 1970s, Siegfried Cremer decided to take counteraction. Everyone who was his guest received an original graphic from this series as a gift. All sheets signed and numbered. The series was designed on 26 different sheets, numbered A/Z - Z/Z, but 13 prints were realized: by Reinhard Döhl (A/Z), Klaus Burkhardt (B/Z), Siegfried Cremer (C/Z), Heinz Decker (D/Z), Dieter Rot (E/Z), Hansjörg Mayer (F/Z), D. Albrecht (G/Z), Hermann Finsterlin (H/Z), Reinhard Döhl (I/Z), Klaus Burkhardt (J/Z) herman de vries (K/Z), Wolf Vostell (L/Z) and Reinhard Döhl (not completed)
