"This progressive book object combines two volumes and covers the sweep and depth of BALTZ’s influential oeuvre.

'Rule Without Exception' is a re-issue of BALTZ’s award-winning mid-career retrospective book which accompanied a travelling exhibition of the same name in 1991.

The book surveys BALTZ’s work from 'The Prototype Works' (1967) through to 'Sites of Technology' (1991), showing the range of his images of industrialised landscapes and technological sites. Each section of the book is accompanied by installation views as well as texts by distinguished writers, some newly commissioned for this edition.

'Only Exceptions' is a new book chronicling BALTZ’s work – now usually site-generated commissioned works – from 1992 to the present and is published on the occasion of an exhibition organized by the Kunstmuseum, Bonn.
'Only Exceptions' includes BALTZ’s work in California, Leipzig’s 'Black Triangle', Reggio Emilia, Groningen, Rome, Venice, and two projects with Jean Nouvel in France and Italy.
