Untitled, Black / White

description

Artist's book by Louise Lawler composed of clinical photographs of playing cards interspersed between text "written by Janelle Reiring, and based on Henry G. Wales' account of Mata Hari's execution written in Paris on October 18 1917 for the International News Service. With only slight alternations this account serves as the voice-over narration during the driving sequence." -- from book's colophon. Additionally, this volume continued Lawler's interest in playing with notions of value with the following text printed on inside front cover: "The price of this book is $4.95 or $100. / The price of this work is $4.95 or $100.00. / The price of this copy is encircled. / $4.95 $100.00" This version of the book is indicated as "$100.00" edition.
