Conversation Pieces

Joseph Grigely

Conversation Pieces


An especially beautiful publication from one of the best publishers of artists' books. "Conversation Pieces" turns on the story of Laurent Clerc's deafness as a means of relating the author's own deafness. Intertwining reproductions of Grigely's collection of paper scraps with notes passed between people he meets as a means of conversation, and images from historic Japanese woodcuts and Western pre-twenty century images.
