Paris: Point d'ironie/Agnes b, 2002
43.4 x 30.7cm, 8pp, A single number of the artist's periodical which invites a single artist to create an artist's book. This is one of two such publications by Boltanski in the series - he also did number 50 8 years later. The pages of the tabloid do not register other than a general shape when looked at in isolation but when one opens up the pages and conjoins the sheets one can see an appropriated vintage b/w photograph of an unidentified man and a woman. Folded for storage else VG+. Somewhat scarce despite the large edition size of 10,000 copies.

Frankfurt: Revolver, 2002
20.5 x 15.5cm, unpagainated (80pp) plus wrappers and printed semi-opaque dust-wrapper which is printed on both sides (so that some text is read through the paper). Monk's artist book displays the gaps between the blocks on the Sunset Strip - thus "filling in" the bits of the street that were not reproduced in Ed Ruscha's famous original photo-book. One of 500 published but this is a hard to find publication. Some minor wear to the dustjacket and the odd small strain but else VG+.
