Claude Closky | The 365 Days of 1991 Classified by Size

A fourteen page, staple-bound book that collects every day from 1991 and writes it out in long form ("Tuesday the first of July") and then organizes them based on the number of characters in the sentence. The longest day of that year was “Wednesday the twenty-seventh of November.” Produced in France in 1992, in an edition of one hundred unsigned and unnumbered copies.

Up until fairly recently Printed Matter had this (and other early Closky titles) available for around twenty dollars each. They are now out of stock and the title is hard to come by. The always great Florence Loewy has it, and numerous others, listed on her site, but I'm not fond of the 'price available upon request' set up.
