Edition unlimited

Although holzpostkarte is an unlimited edition Multiple, the wood-grain for each varies, so each is considered to be unique.
Those, which carry the address ‘edition staeck – 69 heidelberg 1’, are from the first edition before edition staeck’s address changed to ‘edition staeck – 69117 heidelberg 1’. The first edition is sought after.

First edition noted in Joseph Beuys Multiples, Catalogue Raisonné of Multiples and Prints1965-1985, Schellmann, No. 99.
