Physical Description
January 1973 issue of Essen & Trinken (Eat & Drink) magazine, to which was added a polyester vellum cover with the words “GEISTIG VERHUNGERN” printed in black all caps letters on front, and on reverse LM in two lines of black all caps letters “JOSEPH BEUYS” FETTZEITUNG / EDITION STAECK, HEIDELBERG". NOTE: the idea of the magazine being filled with fat seems to refer to the recipes printed in the issue.
