Paris: Yvon Lambert, 2000. 2nd Edition. Tall narrow octavo, publisher's stiff brown paper wraps, spine and upper wrap lettered in silver.
Collection of strange, quietly subversive observations and aphorisms on ordinary life by feminist conceptual artist Holzer, known for her large-scale, text-based public installations: "There is a period when it is clear that you have gone wrong but you continue. Sometimes there is a luxurious amount of time before anything bad happens." Finely printed in a monument-style font on the oblong on translucent vellum paper. Originally published in 1998 in conjunction with the exhibition "Jenny Holzer: Blue" at Galérie Yvon Lambert, Paris (September 12 - October 31). Says art dealer and publisher Lambert, "Most book lovers are discreet people who like to read at home... Owning great books is not a mark of social or financial success" (W Magazine). Some natural warping to translucent vellum. Near fine. Item #430
