“We know how artist’s make these books, but how does a critic or a curator make one? The first suggestion was to have a double page spread for every show I’ve ever done, with the announcement card on the left-hand page, and a work that had been included in that show reproduced on the right, a very basic format that owes a debt to the deadpan nature of Ed Ruscha’s classic books.”
