Description

This book project ensued from discussions between Christoph Schifferli, Christophe Daviet-Thery and Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié.

The conversation between Jonathan Monk and Yann Sérandour took place on March 10, 2011.

In september 2009, Christophe Daviet-Thery invited the swiss collector Christoph Schifferli to curate an exhibition at his gallery. The show was called “Books on Books” and presented 26 artists’ books that are, in some way or another, about books or their representation.

The same year, in december 2009, Christophe Daviet-Thery asked to Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié to take care of the catalog even if this book works independently from the exhibition. He invited Jonathan Monk and Yann Sérandour to have a conversation about 12 well-known artist books, the transcript of which forms this book. Published by Christophe Daviet-Thery.
