Staple-bound card wraps in a blue card sleeve with an image of one of her works mounted on the cover, 21.4 by 21.4 cm, 31 pp. plus colophon, illus. with 6 color images and 9 black and white images. The book is very good with some light rubbing from the sleeve; the sleeve is very good with some minor scuff marks. A scarce, early exhibition guide for the British artist, author, photographer, and art historian Liz Rideal, published to coincide with a 1990 show at The Photographers’ Gallery in London. “Since 1985 the photobooth has been the cumbersome tool of Liz Rideal‘s art. Even at a time when the production of art has fully seeped out of its shell of convention, to be hardened and remoulded by technology, the photobooth seems like an unlikely structure in that imaginary landscape in which ideas are nurtured and ‘creative acts’ are carried out. Instead the photobooth seems to fit more appropriately into the well formed image of our advanced consumer society; part of the plastic and stainless steel clutter that surrounds our hunted passage through supermarkets, department stores and railway stations.”
