An ingenious and collectible book-as-poster documenting Prince’s half-century of image appropriation.
Designed in the dimensions of a 12-by-12-inch LP record and housed in a plastic sleeve, when unfolded it transforms into a two-sided (one English, one Danish) poster with a richly illustrated collage of works by Prince from across his career (including his famous “rephotographs”), plus two in-depth texts on Prince’s oeuvre by the curators Nancy Spector and Anders Kold.
A defining figure of the Pictures Generation, Prince is famed for his radical acts of appropriation, which have taken many turns across the course of his five-decade career. His visual world, encapsulated in this innovatively designed volume, offers a remarkably consistent portrait of late 20th-century America.
