Hardcover, black cloth with red cover titles, dust jacket, 27 by 21.5 cm, 86 pp., illus. The hardcover is near fine with only faint signs of wear; the jacket is fair with edge wear and small tears, some creases, and a faint damp stain on the front panel that has not affected the book. A scarce hardcover copy of this collaboration between the artist Nguyen Van Hung and philologist and philosopher Philippe Hunt. Features full-color images of Hung’s paintings and sculptures, and excepts from his sketchbooks, accompanied by text from Hunt. “Hung is mad. We’ve known this for a while. Hung is mad, which is fortunate for him. Fortunate for us too, after all … As for Hunt, Hung reckons that Hunt is mad. But then Hung is mad.” A stunning selection of Hung’s work. Text is in French and Vietnamese, with English translations at the back. Jacket is in a removable mylar sleeve. No writing, highlighting, names, or other markings.
