A collaboration between Jan Tumlir and Brian Kennon and a "prelude catalog" to Tumlir's exhibition of the same name.

Desertshore begins with the image from the cover of the Nico album (also a film still from La Circatrice Interieure by Philippe Garrel) to then find a path on/through works from the late 60's - 70's that commonly trip out from the city center and travel to the pasts and futures of desert and space. Moving through Robert Smithson, Ed Ruscha, Bas Jan Ader, Stanley Kubrick's 2001, Alejandro Jodorowsky's El Topo,and Pink Floyd, the book ends with a re-telling of the final sequence of Michelangelo Antonioni's Zabriskie Point.
