México, D.F: Patricia Lagarde, 2009. color plates, folded as accordion-style (printed on both sides), boards, sig. Item #118356

SIGNED, NUMBERED OF LIMITED EDITION OF 75. Book artist by Patricia Lagarde (b. México, 1961) inspired in the main character of the nouvelle The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. "What was Gregory Samsa's room like? What objects decorated it? What was the portrait of a woman hanging on one of the walls like? what were his routes, once he had become an insect? Was the landscape he looked out of his window beautiful? These and other questions about the life of Gregory Samsa in Kafka's Metamorphosis make up the content of the book, where each image asks one of these questions and each printed word speaks to us of estrangement and loneliness. An architectural book that invites us to see through a window."
