An unique full colour photographic print - 24 x 31cm - a 6 image contact print from the original photographs used to create the book ONE IN ONE HUNDRED (CHILD). This is signed and dated "Jonathan Monk 2010" in blue ink on the reverse of the photograph. Fine.
Paris: One Star Press, 2007
14 x 22.5cm, 150pp plus card covers. Artist's book which has been hand-wrapped in white semi-transparent paper and scotch tape (by Monk as a deliberate intervention) copy of the title book (which in itself was released by One Star Press in a very small edition of only 250 copies) with the back of the wrapped paper signed in blue ink - the whole being meant to remain unopened and therefore the internal pages unread. The book reproduces 100 times the front cover of the book which in its turn reproduces the cover image from a box of Ilford photographic paper (a stock image of a child).
Together Monk has created a means by which the internal aspect of the book can be viewed without disrupting the deliberate wrapping (a la Christo). The book should be displayed (obviously) unopened alongside the contact print. Unique. A gift from the artist to Paul Robertson.
