Description

With text in both French and English, this book combines text and image with silkscreened cards and stamped and handwritten text. Using aesthetics of postwar design and cultural theory concepts dealing with text (think Barthes and Baudrillard), it is a super smart spiral bound book with a brief essay by Peggy Gale.

Spiral-bound, b&w and colour throughout.
