Diane Arbus
Diane Arbus: The Libraries
HC in slipcase 28,5 x 18 cm., o.pp.
Fraenkel 2005

Aufwendige Hommage an Arbus, für Liebhaber und Bibliophile. Die Bibliothek von Diane Arbus wurde von Megan Lewis anhand der Installation im Moma San Francisco abfotografiert. Mit beigelegter Übersicht über den Bestand ihrer Sammlung.

Susan Sontag once referred to her library as "the inside of my head... a map of my brain." If a library does indeed function as a sort of x-ray of one's preoccupations, the library of Diane Arbus offers fascinating insights into her personal interests and obsessions. Through exquisite reproductions presented in a unique accordian fold-out format, Diane Arbus: The Libraries showcases books and other objects from the artist's collection as displayed in the international museum retrospective Diane Arbus: Revelations. Edited by Doon Arbus.
