Francesca Woodman: The Artist’s Books collects for the first time every page of all eight of Francesca Woodman’s unique artist’s books in one comprehensive volume, including two newly discovered books which have never before been seen alongside better-known titles such as Some Disordered Interior Geometries. The basis of these works is in tattered 19th and early 20th century journals and notebooks that Woodman collected from bookshops and flea markets in Rome in the late 1970s. She later transformed these found volumes, attaching her prints, transparencies, and written annotations to their evocative pages. These books demonstrate a sophisticated relationship to narrative and sequence and offer a new understanding of the scope of Woodman’s engagement with the book form.

Francesca Woodman: The Artist's Books will be available as a 408 page hardback monograph.

A limited edition box set, comprising facsimiles of each of the eight books, with silver gelatin prints and transparencies tipped-in by hand, is also available.
