A continuation of the artist's many alcohol-themed projects, this eel-skin wallet contains virtually every conceivable event drink ticket currently in use. Buy one, and wherever you are the drinks are always on the house.
Originally launched at the London Art Book Fair, where AA Bronson named Eel's Wallet and Nothing Else Press as one of the Top 5 highlights of the Fair in Time Out Magazine:
‘Named after Dick Higgins' Fluxus-heavy press of the ’60s and ’70s, Something Else Press, this young publisher seemed the only ones present to have produced an entire new line of works especially for the Fair. My favourite? “Eel’s Wallet” by Dean Baldwin, an edition of 47 wallets stuffed full of drinks tickets, which bizarrely becomes some sort of “book” for which we have no name.’
