Bibliothèque d’un amateur
This book is not a proper catalogue raisonné, but rather an invitation to browse the library of an amateur. It allows us to consider an important aspect of Richard Prince’s work,
addressing books as well as the notion of a collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the “ghosts” of missing books. It encompasses his library and his production of artists’ books over the past four decades, the direct result of an avid book designer and collector who is also widely recognised for his painterly and photographic practice. His zeal for bound works is expressed in many instances where he photographs tomes from his own collection, transforming the publication into an infinite library.
