This book is not a catalogue raisonné, instead it takes a look at the library of an amateur. It is an excuse to examine this aspect of Richard Prince’s work, which encompasses books, and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ‘ghosts’ of the missing books.
Richard Prince is an avid and obsessive collector of books.
This fervor is visible in The Good Life or American/English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.
