COVER VERSION. 2004. SIGNED BY MONK ON A NOTE PUSHED INTO SHRINK WRAP.

London: Book Works, 2004
19.7 x 15.8cm, 64pp plus 6 blank pages in different coloured paper stock. Artist's book with 48 colour images of artist's book in Monk's own collection - all conceptual art books by the likes of Weiner, Le Witt and Ruscha. The latter is interesting in that this book is similar to Ruscha's own publications which show bland, objective images and also Richard Price who displays record covers (Monk's punning title alludes to that).  This is in VG+ condition and is a scarce book.
Monk has opened the shrink wrap and pushed a handwritten note into the package that says:" But which one is worth more? /Until then/JM." This is a reference to a second copy of the same book that Monk sent unopened in shrink wrap but signed on the plastic. VR+. Unique thus.

Artist's book where an initial slide of a glass of milk is duplicated, a duplicate was made of that duplicate, and so on, until there were 50 generations of the original image each becoming more blue in the colour range because of the flaws in the duplication method. Resolution and details are also lost. The book can also be seen as a flick-book with the pages creating a "movie" if flipped with the thumb. VG+ although there is a remnant of a price sticker on the back cover. One of 800.
