Paris, Dilecta/Musée du Louvre, 2009
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+.
