Paris:Lab’Bel, 2016
11cm dia. x 5cm, sealed outer box content of a number of aluminium wrapped soft cheeses. One of a number (this being the third) of such boxes commissioned by the company where artists adapted the box design. Monk for his commission simply flipped the well known box design.
This example is signed on the base by Monk but sadly there are some marks from the spores from the cheese as it is very difficult to store such a work (we now think the best thing is to dry it out slowly and desicate the cheese which is our plan). Else VG and unopened.

Monk had taken the famous lid design and reversed it and added the text "Parfois nous oublions l'evidence. Etre original est presque impossible." This promotional item is signed by Monk on the reverse and was a gift from the artist to Paul Robertson. VG+. ...

The book has a number of fantastic short stories ("topological fiction's) by John Holten. This is one of 150 published copies. VG+.
