N.p.: n.p., n.d. (2009)
Small plastic, metal and paper button badge with the title text (which not only reflects the pin aspect of the badge but also other Monk works where pins are pushed through postcards and other items). Limitation unknown. Fine.

...

N.p: s.p., n.d.
Two different 84 x 64cm, full colour lithographic prints each with a different view of the artist’s father having fallen through a deckchair while relaxing in his garden. A typically nostalgic use of the artist’s family archive to create a new work used we believe as a floor stack in the way that Felix Gonzalez-Torres would do. Limitation unknown. VG+.

...

Glasgow: Tramway, 2009
30 x 21cm, unpaginated. Pictorial hard boards. Artist's book where Monk has appropriated a Blue Peter (a UK famous and very popular long running children's programme from the BBC) annual (a staple of Xmas stockings remembered fondly by middle class adults of a certain age) and added items from his collection of announcement cards by conceptual artists. Limitation unknown. Fine.

23 x 17.5cm, 120pp pluw printed boards including 40 illustrations b/w. This first edition of the artist's book lists all of the artists found in the museum alphabetically within various rather contrived groupings. Boltanski has added 40 constructions where b/w reproductions of portraits of artists and employees of the museum have been cut up and recombined with half of the upper faces being attached to a different artist/employee's lower face - much like a children's card game. One of 2,000 copies. VG++.

...

N.p.: n.p., n.d. (c 2009)
38 x 34cm, green silkscreen on cream cotton plus red handles. One of a number of such bags where Monk indicates his shopping interests but here no specific seller is being specified - instead the lack of a seller is designated as "Untitled" a title that is more associated with individual artworks rather than a shop. Slightly faded but else VG+.

...

Berlin: Eroticxa, n.d. (c 2009)
38 x 34cm, black silkscreen on cream cotton pus handles. One of a number of such bags where Monk indicates his interest in their products by his simple endorsement. On the back of the bag, the design is repeated but in a mirror image. Slightly faded but else VG+.
