Fond du Lac. No More Jive
[N.p.: self-published, 2014]. Fine in photo-illustrated wrappers, housed in a photo-illustrated slipcase.. First Edition. Quarto. Number 4 of a limited edition of 10 numbered copies and 2 AP's, SIGNED and numbered by Christian Patterson. A unique artists' book, created out of a facsimile of the telephone directory of the artist's hometown of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, printed soon after his birth. Patterson has intervened upon the original black-and-white book, adding 42 playful inserts that juxtapose the artist's subjective memory with the directory's objective records. Whereas the telephone book, with its names, numbers, and addresses, presents a detached view of Fond du Lac's denizens and industry, Patterson's work highlights his personal experience of the midwestern city, as a child, adolescent, adult, and artist, by means of the numerous autobiographical references and marginalia interspersed throughout. Features 37 original black-and-white and color prints, 5 notes and drawings, and a selection of found stickers. Each copy has a distinct rear cover with a collaged image and different text.
