Making Books
Oscar Tuazon
Published by Paraguay Press, Paris, 2011, 14 pp., 16 × 22.3 cm, English
Price: €15

Artist Oscar Tuazon’s pamphlet is the first in The Social Life of the Book series, Paraguay Press’s collection of commissioned texts dealing with books, and how they engage with the circulation of ideas and the agency of social situations. “I was raised making books” recalls Tuazon at the beginning of this essay, that addresses the very oft-announced death of the book at the same time as it envisions the conditions of its rebirth. This unflinching reflection on how publishing has changed, also develops as a speculation on the artist’s own approach to sculpture.

Designed by Will Holder.

American artist Richard Prince recycles found materials from American popular culture, most often images from advertisement and magazine photography which he re-photographs, silkscreens, overpaints, frames, enlarges, or arranges in collages, playing with their somehow empty meaning.

Spine
R.H. Quaytman
Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin & Sequence Press, New York, 2011, 416 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 15.2 × 24.4 cm, English
Price: €80 (Out of stock)

Spine resembles a catalogue raisonné of R.H. Quaytman’s work produced since 2001, the year the artist began organizing paintings in what are called “Chapters.” Conceived and written by Quaytman, this more than 400-page volume presents a full decade’s output, from “The Sun, Chapter 1” to “Spine, Chapter 20,” the latest series which revisits motifs elaborated in the preceding nineteen chapters. A text articulating the artist’s systematic pictorial practice, executed on Golden Section wood panels, is printed on the book’s unfolding dust jacket.
