Art Library Rare Books Collection N7433.4.C72 D37 2013 box 15.2

Edition of 35 copies, autographed and numbered by the artist, Art Library has copy 25. "Dating is part personal ad, part consolidation of my thoughts based on prior experiences. It is meant to be funny, but also to seriously examine and question the expectations brought to romantic encounters. It is a very personal work, but my readers seem to find themes that resonate with them as well. The book consists of an envelope enclosure holding 5 small [sewn, letterpress printed] pamphlets and a card. The pamphlet books ask questions and provide a choose-your-own-adventure of sarcastic answers. Language not suitable for children" — Artist's statement at Vamp & Tramp Booksellers website, viewed February 7, 2018.
