In his brief career, artist Blinky Palermo created several portfolios and artist’s books. Miniaturen II was his final book. Published two years before his death, it features very small prints, as the title implies, that showcase his signature style of geometric abstraction on an intimate scale. This book follows other works, such as Fünf Miniaturen (1972), which also feature miniature prints.

The four foil embossed prints in this book – each no larger than 2 7/8’’ x ½’’ – are characteristically colorful. Each print involves two to four bright colors arranged in rectangular and irregular shapes and centered in a cream-colored sea of heavyweight, textured paper. Other than the title page and the justification, no text accompanies the prints.

Miniaturen II is bound in quarter cloth with white cloth and white board covers. The title is printed on the front cover in black ink. The slim volume is protected by a clear plastic dust jacket and a white cardstock slipcase.

This is copy 31 out of an edition of 100 copies numbered with Arabic numerals and 10 copies numbered with Roman numerals. It is signed and numbered by the artist at the justification on the back cover of the book.
