Due to a dispute with Artaud's heirs, this book contains no reproductions of the artwork described, but instead a series of haunting photographs of the artist.Hide synopsis

Description:Georges Pastier (photographs) Near Fine in Fine jacket. 8vo-over...Georges Pastier (photographs) Near Fine in Fine jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. Here are (published for the first time together in English) two famous texts on Artaud's drawings and portraits, translated by Mary Ann Caws. CONTENTS: Preface-Derrida's Maddening Text: AR-TAU (Caws); The Search for a Lost World (Thevenin); To Unsense the Subjectile (Derrida); 157 pages, illustrated with Pastier's remarkable photographs. NOTE: None of Artaud's actual art-works are included in this volume, due to a dispute between the publishers and Artaud's heirs. CONDITION: The book itself is bright, solid, square and unmarked, with negligible shelf-wear, compromised only by noticeably bumped lower right cover corners. Its dustjacket-now in a clear mylar Brodart (removable) protective cover-is pristine, though the accompanying scan image has a "fogginess" to it, which I can only conclude is a symptom of reflection from the mylar cover.
