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.
