New York: Louise Lawler, 1978. First Edition. Set of two 16mo. volumes. Wraps. Each volume [26]pp. Minor edgewear, unmarked pages. Both volumes very good plus or better. 0931706009 (Item ID: 22275)

Two-volume set of artist's books, Volume I red and Volume II blue, otherwise identical in presentation: both volumes feature a drawing of the back of a playing card on every page, each one identified below by its suit and number. Each volume includes a different selection of cards, differentiated by caption but visually identical -- 26 cards in each volume, adding up to a full deck. No other text or title information is present. Lawler's interest in contextualization, appropriation, and (re)-presentation led to her affiliation with the Pictures Generation group, as designated by critic Douglas Crimp, concerns already evident in this intriguing early work, which arbitrarily asigns each book an original price of either "$7.95" or "$100.00," this set both the former.
