The Artist Book (Special Edition)

Laure Prouvost (2013)

Out of print

Turner Prize 2013 nominee Laure Prouvost uses the idea of the artist’s book as biography, juxtaposing formal devices with mini-narratives, images, and additional handwritten notes.

This is a special limited edition of The Artist Book, each with a unique artwork, sized and folded like a dust jacket for the special hardback version of the book. Each artwork represents a new version of ‘a cover’, replete with the forms of collage, hand painted bums, watercolour images, scrawled asides and comments, handwritten titles and other material normally found on a cover.

Published by Book Works in a limited edition of 12, plus 3 artist’s proofs.

Each artwork is signed and numbered by the artist, presented in a folder with a special hardback edition of The Artist Book bound in cloth and housed in a slipcase, produced by Book Works Studio. Book size, 160 x 235 mm, designed by Fraser Muggeridge Studio, image size 455 x 395 mm, folded to 345 x 238 mm.
