- Fine artist book, with a multiple by James Lee Byars, ed. 1,000 copies

Lund; AB Propexus, 1990.

 First edition. 24x18 cm. 320 pp. Blue steel binding with black edges. The book is contained in a cushion package, together with "The Sphere of Generosity", a multiple in fired clay by James Lee Byars, and housed in the original printed card slipcase. Very fine. The book was published on the occasion of Orr's exhibition at Anders Tornberg Gallery in Lund in an edition of 1000 copies, and designed by Gert Fors, John Melin, and Anders Tornberg. The art critic Thomas McEvilley has contributed with a series of texts. The "Skull Page" paper was handmade by Yoshio Ikezaki, Los Angeles, using kozo fibers and a powdered mummy skull. "The Matter of O" was rubber-stamped with Eric Orr's blood. Pp. 25-26 are blank with a vertical tear deliberately made by Orr.
