Prince, Richard. Bettie Kline. Paris: Purple Institute, 2012. Perfect-bound wraps, 14.8 by 19 cm, not paginated (112 pp.). Fine. Originally published by the Gagosian Gallery in 2009, this scaled-down version was published in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the fashion magazine Purple (See also the next item). An artist book by Prince based on the premise that Franz Kline used Irving Klaw’s photos of Bettie Page – and possibly Page herself as a life, oft bound, model – as inspiration for his paintings. Kline and Klaw were friends and resided in the same building while Klaw was photographing the famous Page bondage images. This booklet pairs images of Page with very convincing paintings by Kline. Includes a Bettie Kline bookmark.
