“How to Become an Artist? Expanded edition”

A book by Daiga Krūze and Krišs Salmanis.
100 blank pages with a ten page appendix, edition of 100.
Bilingual (Latvian, English), hardcover.
€10 (+P&P)

Brief synopsis:
Having studied arts at a number of institutions, the authors felt finally able to produce their first collaborative show appropriately titled “One hundred per cent disappointment”. Part of it was the much sought after first edition of this handbook.
Half a dozen years later the new edition fails to answer the question again.
