Michael Craig-Martin has contributed to the publication A Man Walks Into A Bar; a collection of postcards and jokes edited by Franziska Sperling and Johannes Sperling and published by Hatje Cantz.


“A man walks into a bar. . . .”—the unmistakable prelude to a joke. This remarkable collection of artist’s postcards of the same name could not have a more fitting title.
