Prince, Richard. Inside World. New York: Kent Fine Art and Thea Westriech. 1989.
Both an exhibition catalogue and a work of art, this book is Prince’s visual narrative of the media’s portrayal of sex and aggression drawn from the works of many artists including Richard Artschwager, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Man Ray, Francis Picabia and, of course, Richard Prince himself. Prince has woven the whole exhibition seamlessly into this publication.
Included with this deluxe edition of the book is an early hand-written and signed joke, which with this copy is discretely and archivally framed. Prince began this form of expression in the 1980s and has continued it to the present day.
This is an early artist’s book by Prince, one of over fifty he has made in his career. Beautifully bound in red linen with gold lettering on the front and back boards and on the spine. This copy is number 149 of 250 deluxe copies signed and numbered by Prince. The hand-written joke is also signed by Prince.
