Orange cloth-backed, photo-pictorial boards, silver lettering on upper board and spine, photo-pictorial endpapers, small security sticker on half-title page indicating that this is a second edition; no dust jacket, as issued; pp. 557,  (acknowledgments and credits). Signed by Sachs on the title page. Book is without flaw, appearing unread, in a custom mylar dust jacket. Produced on the occasion of the artist's solo exhibition at the Fondazione Prada, Milan, this book illustrates "the prolific and innovative nature of Sachs's career, highlighting his fascination with weapons, conformity, cultural imperialism and craft" (from the publisher). This lavish monograph charts his beginnings as an apprentice to master woodworkers in Frank Gehry's studio, through his polarizing "Hello Kitty Nativity" at Barney's, to the present. Full-bleed images on nearly every page give ample room to soak in both his well-known, working replicas of objects like rifles made from Prada hat boxes and self-engineered tools, to more obscure pieces that may have been short on media sensation but not on craft. Contains interviews with Sachs by Germano Celant and Malcolm Gladwell, an essay by Celant, list of works, a biography of the artist, and a bibliography. Text in English and Italian.
