Mémoires by Guy Debord and Asger Jorn behind glass at the New York Art Book Fair.

Out There: in which we dig up War of Words related works.

What would have been the classic War of Words book (mentioned in the previous post) escaped our grasp for the exhibition, but it deserves a place here on our virtual bookshelf. Take a look. Mémoires (1959), by Guy Debord and Asger Jorn, was guaranteed to rub other books the wrong way with its sandpaper dust jacket. I spied it at this year’s New York Art Book Fair at PS1 behind glass and with a price tag of $3500. Also see a found image of the book opened to the title page.
